Who Is That Man, Anyway?
Subject: Louis Daguerre
Location: Gallery Place
( F Street & 7th )
French artist Louis Daguerre (1787-1851) is honored here for his invention of an early form of photography, known as the "daguerreotype." The statue was raised by the Photographers Association of America and originally stood in the National Museum (now the Arts and Industries Building). It was moved to this spot and rededicated by the Professional Photographers Association in 1989 in commemoration of 150 years of photography.
