MDCCCXXXIX is a trifecta of pilgrimages to honor and document the known sites of the invention of photography. Between 2011-2012 I traveled to the homes and studio of Nicéphore Niépce who is credited with fixing the first photographic images, Louis Daguerre who is credited with inventing the Daguerreotype, and William Henry Fox Talbot who is credited with inventing the first photographic negative.
