This was one of Niépce's first successful results with photography, so he did not have the perfect combination of materials, timing, and sunlight to get a clear picture.
Do not stand right in front of it. Move around the exhibit until the image looks clear to you.
Can you tell what the photograph is?
It is a view out of Niépce's upstairs window.
There is a tree, buildings, a roof, and a fence.
What can you see from your window?
