Amsterdam, View of Reguliersbreestraat, Eduard Isaac Asser, c. 1853

salted paper print, h 147mm × w 106mm. More details

Many pioneers, such as Asser, experimented by taking photographs from the window of their own house. This view of Amsterdam is a version developed from a wet collodion glass negative. Asser had shot the exact same scene in 1845, but then on a paper negative. These are the earliest photographs of Amsterdam. Initially the camera was aimed at the world nearby, but it was not long before photographers ventured farther afield with their cameras and equipment.
