Histσry - photographєr Gustavє Lє Gray

Gustave Le Gray (1820–1884) was the central figure in French photography of the 1850s. A teacher and the author of several widely distributed instructional manuals, Le Gray studied painting in the studio of Paul Delaroche, and made his first daguerreotypes by at least 1847. His real contributions, artistically and technically came in the realm of paper photography, in which he first experimented in 1848.
