Street Photography Through Time: A Photo Per Year from 1838 to 2019

Comment

YouTuber Guy Jones created this 20-minute video that offers a brief history of street photography. It’s a slideshow of 182 photos — one photo for every year between 1838 and 2019.

The video starts in 1838 because that’s when photography pioneer Louis Daguerre shot his famous photo of Boulevard du Temple in Paris, which is considered to be the first photo ever to show a human being.

Set to music of each time period, the video shows how the world transformed horse-drawn carriages in black-and-white images in the 1800s to modern cars in color photos the 1900s.

Jones was previous behind beautiful looks at Paris in the 1890s and New York City in 1911.
