In some form or another it has been with us since man scratched images on a cave wall. Zeus gave us fire and the Alchemist parlayed fire and elements to preserve an image on a silver plated sheet of copper (a daguerreotype?). Then the alchemist evolved to a photographer and the photographer became a chemical engineer. Come with us on a journey through time and see how photography fits into your pocket!!
