André Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri
André Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri (born 28 March 1819 in Paris; † 4 October 1889 in the same city) was a French photographer and inventor.
Disdéri patented his so-called carte-de-visite (visiting card portrait) process in 1854, which used a multi-lens camera to capture a series of eight portrait images on collodion negative material. This method soon became a success, displacing all older methods of commercial portrait photography.
In 1858, Disdéri invented what is known as the mosaic picture, in which photographs of different people or views are combined into one photograph.
