After ten years at the head of the House of Nicéphore Niépce,
a museum dedicated to the inventor and the history of photography
that was founded in 1999, Mahé and Mariginier offer a retrospective
on the important events that have punctuated this last
decade: restoration of the house, localization of the place where
the first photography in the world was taken, reconstruction of
the photographic processes, setting up of the collection of objects
and letters owned by Niépce, publication of the inventor's
correspondence etc. The last event to date: the discovery of the
oldest photography lab in the world: Petiot-Groffier's lab, who
was a neighbor and contemporary of Niépce and who practiced
photography from 1840 to 1855. Hundreds of parts, all coming
from the same owner, books, full chemical bottles as well as all
sorts of lab and shooting accessories.
