    Let’s put this into context, photography was not invented, but discovered by various people at different periods in history using a multitude of different processes. The overlap and variations are too numerous to mention. Take any of the halogen compounds and experiment with them long enough and you get an image. There are still many variations of basic chemical imagery yet undiscovered and untouched and well worth a lifetime of experimentation. However, Daguerre was unique in his particular process of image permanence, be it only a one shot process.

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    Francis Bacon

    And when you think of archival quality, that daguerreotype you are holding has lasted far longer than your negative has.

    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander
