Most of us can identify 1, that is not the question. Identify the man in 2. (2 is from the same time frame as 1)

Answer:
Hippolyte Bayard, who invented a competing process to Daguerreotype, supposedly before Louis Daguerre but could not take it in front of the French Academy of Sciences in time because Daguerre’s friend persuaded him not to.

So later he produced world’s first “fake photograph” to fake his own death.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.

    The first one is said to be the first pic ever taken…by daguerre….
