Very early portrait of Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman was an early adopter of portrait photography, visiting many different studios in the course of his lifetime.

Louis Daguerre was a French chemist experimenting with the first photographic process. His first exhibition of "Daguerreotypes" appeared in 1838 and became popular immediately.
