"Boulevard du Temple", a daguerreotype made by Louis Daguerre in 1838, is generally known as the earliest photograph of a human being.
It is a view of a busy street in Paris, but because the exposure time was at least ten minutes the moving traffic left no trace. Only the two men near the bottom left corner, one apparently having his boots polished by the other, stayed in one place long enough to be visible.
