""Hermann Wilhelm Vogel""

Hermann Wilhelm Vogel was a German photochemist and photographer who discovered dye sensitization, which is of great importance to photography.

After initial forays as a mechanic, farmer, merchant, sailor, and waiter in a wine tavern, Vogel became an industrial chemist. In 1860 he joined the instructional faculty at the Vocational Academy and became interested in photography. He founded the Berlin Photographische Verein in 1863, and in 1864 was appointed to the chair of photochemistry at the Academy, which he continued to hold after the school became the Technische Hochschule. In 1864 Vogel founded the journal Photographische Mittheilungen, and by the end of the decade had published one of the major photographic textbooks of the century, Lehrbuch der Photographie. The chemist also took part in many solar-eclipse expeditions and wrote numerous articles.
