Creation of Photoengraving

Joseph-Nicephore Niepce of Chalon-sur-Saone, France, a lithographer created photoengraving in 1822. Niepce sought ways of copying designs through the action of sunlight and succeeded in transferring an engraved image onto a plate coated with bitumen of Judea, a form of asphalt that hardens in the presence of light. The dark areas were washed away with turpentine.
