Updated to this Thread..Here is the first portrait of a person and its a "SELFIE"!
Generally accepted as the earliest surviving photographic portrait image of a human ever produced is the approximately quarter plate daguerreotype by Robert Cornelius [1809–93], a head-and-shoulders [self-]portrait, facing front, with arms crossed, dating from 1839 [Oct. or Nov.]. [LC-USZC4-5001 DLC]. Written on the paper backing is "The first light picture ever taken. 1839." The photograph, now at the Library of Congress in Washington DC, was taken outside his place of business on 8th Street between Market and Chestnut, in Philadelphia.

Love this stuff. Spent about a quarter century in the big photographic company, in new product development. Where it started and how far it has come, how fast, is amazing. Where it will go? Great post. Thanks!!
