Constance Talbot (née Mundy, 1811–1880) was from 1832 the wife of William Henry Fox Talbot, one of the key players in the development of photography in the 1830s and 1840s. She herself briefly experimented with the process as early as 1839 and has been credited as the first woman ever to take a photograph - a hazy image of a short verse by the Irish poet Thomas Moore.
