"View from the Study Window at Maison du Gras", a copy of the heliograph ("sun drawing") made on a pewter plate by Nicéphore Niépce made around 1826. This view taken from a window on the third-floor of his house at Le Gras in the village of St Loup de Varennes in Burgundy is regarded as the earliest surviving photograph ever made.
In 1814 Joseph Niepce achieves first photographic image with camera obscura - however, the image required eight hours of light exposure and later faded.
