Description: Whilst only two images are known to survive, evidence suggests she was experimenting with photography as early as 1839, making her – possibly – the first woman to take a photograph. Today’s moment in history belongs to Constance Talbot (1811-1880), wife of William Henry Fox Talbot. She assisted with early photographic trials & was the subject of this image, possibly the first portrait photograph in October 1840.
