Le Point de Vue du GRAS, eventually photography started there at le Domaine du Gras in Saint Loup de Varennes in south Burgundy, aka the Louvois family estate. Yes it is the pinot noir and white chardonnay wine region, but here we are talking about a landmark
actually a milestone for what could be one of the true major discovery of the french ninetieth century, the first #photography (in negative on a silver plaque) around 1823/26 Nicéphore Niépce invebted the negative image of his vision from a room of his home, printed in bitume de Judée, bitumen of Judea an asphalt naturally light-sensitive
on the pic during our last picnick with some friends, I took the picture of miniature true replica of the first “chambre noire” with its telescopic brass lens in a wooden box, one can see the silhouette of the château façade in the background.
