Jules Itier
Groupe pris dans une rue de Canton 
1844, November
Jules Itier (1802-1877) with the French customs service on a commercial mission to China takes what may be the earliest photographs of Macao [Macau] and wrote:
 
"I spent the last two days capturing the most interesting features of Macau on daguerreotype; the people on the streets respond with greatest kindness to all my demands, and many Chinese allowed photographs to be taken of them, but I had to show them the inside of the apparatus and the object reflected on the polished glass."
 
As the head of the French trade commission in China he takes a Daguerreotype of the signing of the Sino-French peace treaty. (24 October 1844)
