The "Daguerre" in Hahnemuhle Daguerre

Hi Blog Readers,

In my reading for this photography class I am taking this semester, I was reminded of a product we carry! We are talking “light-bulb moment” reminded here. You know the Hahnemuhle Daguerre Canvas? I read about a Parisian painter named Louis Daguerre in my text book. He was involved in the history of photography. Apparently, he perfected the process of heliography [the photographic process to make the earliest known permanent photograph from nature] in the 1830’s. The term for an entire photographic process in the historical timeline of photography even calls the prints “daguerreotypes.”

Pretty cool, right? I never even thought to look up who Daguerre was when I saw that product… I just figured it was another painter.
