*For those who don’t know who Kuha’o is, he is a self taught pianist who has been blind since infancy. He has only been playing the piano for a few short years and has the ability to listen to a song once or twice and then play it on the piano. He loves sharing his gift with anyone that will listen and one day would like to collaborate with other big name musicians.

First Color Photograph
Photograph by James Clerk Maxwell

Best known for his development of electromagnetic theory, Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell dabbled in color theory throughout his life, eventually producing the first color photograph in 1861. Maxwell created the image of the tartan ribbon shown here by photographing it three times through red, blue, and yellow filters, then recombining the images into one color composite.

World’s First Photograph
Photograph by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce

Centuries of advances in chemistry and optics, including the invention of the camera obscura, set the stage for the world’s first photograph. In 1826, French scientist Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, took that photograph, titled View from the Window at Le Gras, at his family’s country home. Niépce produced his photo—a view of a courtyard and outbuildings seen from the house’s upstairs window—by exposing a bitumen-coated plate in a camera obscura for several hours on his windowsill.
