This picture, the earliest known photograph to include a recognizable human form, was taken in Paris, France, in 1838 by Louis Daguerre. The human in question is standing in the bottom-left of the photograph, on the pavement by the curve in the road.  He is having his boots shined.

LOUIS DAGUERRE: 1844 by Jean-Baptiste Sabatier-Blot. The daguerreotype gradually declined in popularity around the in favor of simpler and less cumbersome photography methods such as the tintype and the ambrotype.

The earliest reliably dated photo­graph of a person, taken in spring 1838 by Daguerre. Though it shows Paris' busy Boul­e­vard du Temple, the long exposure time (about ten or twelve minutes) meant that moving traffic cannot be seen; however, the two men at lower left (one apparently having his boots polished by the other) remained still long enough to be dist­inctly visible.

Photograph by Louis Daguerre of the Boulevard du Temple, Paris. Taken late 1838 or The first ever photograph of people. (Towards the bottom left corner there is a man having his boots polished).

Daguerreotypy, the first photographic process, spread around the world after its inventor Louis Daguerre (1787-1851) presented it to the public in 1839. Exposed in a camera obscura and developed in mercury vapors, each highly polished silvered-copper plate is a unique photograph that exhibits extraordinary detail and three-dimensionality when viewed in proper light

Daguerreotype photography was invented by Louis Daguerre (1789-1851) and was made public in 1839. In the Daguerreotype process a picture made on a silver surface sensitized with iodine was developed by exposure to mercury vapour. Daguerre granted the right to make and sell daguerreotype cameras to a relative of his, Alphonse Giroux of Paris. Photography thus became available to the general public in 1839 and this was the first commercially available camera.

Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicéphore Niépce (who was Daguerre's partner, died before their invention was completed) invented the first practical photographic method, which was named the daguerreotype, in 1836.
