In 1826, Frenchman named Niépce needed pictures for his business. He was not goodartist, so he invented very simple camera. He put it in window of his house and took picture ofhis yard. That was the first photograph.The next important date in the history of photography was 1837. That year, Daguerre, anotherFrenchman, took picture of his studio. He used new kind of camera and different process. Inhis pictures, you could see everything clearly, even the smallest details. This kind of photograph wascalled daguerreotype .Soon, other people began to use Daguerre's process. Travelers brought back daguerreotypesfrom all around the world. People photographed famous buildings, cities, and mountains.In about 1840, the process was improved. Then photographers could take pictures of peopleand moving things. The process was not simple and photographers had to carry lots of film andprocessing equipment. However, this did not stop photographers, especially in the United States.After 1840, daguerreotype artists were popular in most cities.Matthew Brady was one well-known American photographer. He took many portraits offamous people. The portraits were unusual because they were lifelike and full of personality. Bradywas also the first person to take pictures of war. His 1862 Civil War pictures showed dead soldiersand ruined cities. They made the war seem more real and more terrible.In the 1880s, new inventions began to change photography. Photographers could buy filmready-made in rolls, instead of having to make the film themselves. Also, they did not have toprocess the film immediately. They could bring it back to their studios and develop it later. They didnot have to carry lots of equipment. And finally, the invention of the small handheld camera madephotography less expensive.With small camera, anyone could be photographer. People began to use cameras just forfun. They took pictures of their families, friends, and favorite places. They called these pictures"snapshots".Documentary photographs became popular in newspapers in the 1890s. Soon magazines andbooks also used them. These pictures showed true events and people. They were much more realthan drawings.Some people began to think of photography as form of art. They thought that photographycould do more than show the real world. It could also show ideas and feelings, like other art forms.From Reading Power” by Beatrice S.
