Best Answer

Modern Photography is attributed to William Henry 'Fox' Talbot, who took the first positive / negative photograph in 1840. Although not the first to produce photograhs, his positive/negative process has earned him the nick name 'father of modern photography'.

The picture was taken in a village called Laycock in the United Kingdom.
