J. Nicéphore Niépce (1765-1833) was a pioneer of photography, if not the father of the medium. His family was full of remarkable achievers outlined in this family history. The genealogy explores several branches of his family; one of Niépce's direct descendants, Janine Niépce, is a contemporary photographer of great renown in France.
