      Such a fitting name for a photographic inventor!

      "Louis Jean Lumière (1864 - 1948), and his brother Auguste Lumière were among the earliest filmmakers. (Appropriately, "lumière" translates as "light" in English.)

      "Their father, Charles Antoine Lumière (1840-1911), ran a photographic firm and both brothers worked for him: Louis as a physicist and Auguste as a manager. Louis had made some improvements to the still-photograph process, the most notable being the dry-plate process, which was a major step towards moving images." -- Wikipedia
