Acropolis Photo Gallery
The oldest known photograph of the Acropolis?
It is believed to be an image taken by the French photographer Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey in 1842. Girault de Prangey was a pioneer of early photography and used the daguerreotype process, the first publicly available photographic process, which was widely used during the 1840s and 1850s. His image of the Acropolis is a valuable historical document, providing a snapshot of this ancient site during the early days of photography.View an image of the Acropolis by Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey taken in 1842 at the MET Museum Web Site
