French Friday

Shared publicly  - 
 
Today on French Friday we features the 'should be more well-known French : Inventors of Photography

Joseph Nicéphore Niépce (March 7, 1765 – July 5, 1833) of Burgundy (Eastern France) Also a co-invented of internal combustion engine.
Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre (18 November 1787 – 10 July 1851) of Val-d'Oise (near Paris) Also invented diorama.

• 1822 Niépce successfully made the first heliographic image
• 1825 Niépce produced the oldest photographic image, after 32 years in the making
• 1829-1833 Niépce started his collaboration with Daguerre, until his death. Together they invented some photo chemical magic (physautotype.)
• 1835 Deguerre continued the experiment finally invented the (more) practical photographic process dubbed Deguerreotype. Majorly improved the time needed for exposure (from 8hrs to less than 30min.) plus he enabled the permanenting of the images. But it was still all backward and reflective.
• 1839 (January) Deguerro himself and Niépce's son Isidore traded the formulas for humble lifetime pension to the French government
• 1839, on August 19, the French government announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World.”

Making August 19 the World Photography Day

Except the English didn't want this 'gift', so they retained their distance, both making it difficult to spread the use of the Frenches' methods around without licensing, and (but) helped nurtured their own inventions in this field.

The British inventors :
• 1835 Henry Fox Talbot, also a serious amateur chemist with serious cash who was first to put photos on paper. He made his first successful photograph using "calotype" or "talbotype". Who later probably invented photography licensing litigations.
• 1950s Frederick Scott Archer invented (obsolete) collodion process and co-invented ambrotype with Peter Fry

and..The American
• 1888 George Eastman invented roll film

Not so known bits in the history of photography :
•1834 Antoine Hercule Romuald Florence, a French-Brazilian, also an inventor, an illustrator, a voyager, and a father of 20 children, isolatedly invented the process of photography and was first to call in photographie but he never published, so he's remain largely unknown even as he invented sound recording and money printer.

FrenchFriday today features an Editorial Cartoonist "Stephff" Stephane Peray, a journalist turns cartoonist and gallery owner currently living and working for a major newspaper in Thailand. There's conflicting internet information whether he was born in Bangkok or Paris. In any case, here's a gallery features his work this week in confluence with the French presidential election.

War Photographers risk their lives on the front lines of the world conflicts. This week we lost Rémi Orchlik in Syria a little over a year after Lucas Dolego who died in Tunisia. Both were young photographers of French national.

This week we solemnly give small tribute to their ultimate sacrifice.

Arrrgh! I'm not sure how that translates to French, but what a loss. Très tragique.

anything French for Friday fun
Introduction
France is more than Paris, Bordeaux, Champagne, or Cheeses. There are mountains, beaches, regions, villages, it's rather a way of living. Here's a page where anyone is invited to contribute to a special photography theme.
