AN original Daguèrreotype is a real joy for the eye. Louis Daguerre discovered the
first fixing image process in 1837. Because the final illumination was to be done
inside the wooden camera, it was just not possible to make multiple copies of one
image. The Daguèrreotype process was losing interest around 1860, after the invention
of the paper negatives.
Until 2007! After more than 1000 hours of research, the Dutch photographer and artist
Marinus J. Ortelee succeeded in overcoming this dillemma. Because of his discovery,
it is possible today to make a genuine Daguèrreotype from every photograph. The thrill
your experiencing by looking at a Daguèrreotype will be fenominal!
