William Henry Fox Talbot was a British scientist, inventor, and photography pioneer. He is credited with the invention of the calotype, an early photographic process, in 1841. His invention made it possible to produce multiple copies of a photograph, and it was a significant improvement over earlier photographic methods that only produced one unique image. He also made important contributions to the development of photolithography, which is used in printing and reproducing images.
