first click ever
The first permanent photograph ever taken, by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce in 1826.
first art syncronicity photograph
“Dali Atomicus” by Philippe Halsman.
This photograph was shot live. It took 26 attempts, & over five hours to get it to look like this. Halsman would count, & on ‘four’, Salvador Dali would leap in the air, three assistants would throw cats, one other assistant would chuck the bucket of water, & Halsman’s wife would hold the chair as Halsman took the picture.
first greatest sports photograph
Neil Leifer’s iconic photo of Muhammad Ali’s knockout of Cleveland Williams in 1966.
first hug for science photograph
A photograph from the October 1927 Fifth Solvay International Conference, where the world’s most notable physicists met to discuss the newly formulated quantum theory. The leading figures were Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. Einstein, not completely convinced with Heisenberg’s “Uncertainty Principle,” said “God does not play dice.” Bohr replied, “Einstein, stop telling God what to do.”
furthest earth photograph

first “OWNED” photograph
Muybridge’s The Horse in Motion, 1878
In 1872, the former governor of California Leland Stanford, a businessman and race-horse owner, hired Muybridge for some photographic studies. He had taken a position on a popularly debated question of the day — whether all four feet of a horse were off the ground at the same time while trotting.
Muybridge settled Stanford’s question with a single photographic negative showing his Standardbred trotting horse Occident airborne at the trot.
hopefully more to come on that topic ;)
