What was the first photograph to ever be accepted into a art museum? When did photography become a new form of art?

    To understand how photography became to be considered an art form, read up on Alfred Stieglitz.

    Stieglitz is credited as the man who made photography into an art form through his salons.

    While Alan correctly points out the first photograph, it's unclear as to whether or not it was actually the first to hang in a museum.

      Certainly by the 1850s people like Rejlander (spelling|?!) were making photos as "art", and a copy of his "Two Ways of Life" was bought by Queen Victoria in the UK. It was a photomontage involving about 30 separate photos of 30 models.

    The first picture taken by Joseph Niepce (French 1765 - 1833) made the first picture ever with a camera. The year was 1816. He worked and worked to make a picture that would be permanent as all before soon faded. In 1826, shooting a view from his window. The exposure took 8 hours. No film yet, he coated a pewter plate of metal with a tar like substance called Judea and developing with lavender oil. He partnered with Daguerre, who improved the process. This image now in the museum, University of Texas in Austin. Daguerre is considered by many to be the inventor of practical photography.
