This is actually quite an old article in French on the relationship between alchemy and photography:

http://www.jann-van-brugge.com/2009/09/19/la-photographie-fille-de-lalchimie/

I dug it out because of the publication of a novel by Ennery Taramelli about the photographic pioneer Daguerre which also I believe touches on the alchemical life of Paris in the 19th century.

"Dans le style de l’époque, elle restitue l’effervescence de ce début de siècle dominé par les grandes découvertes et inventions techniques mais aussi l’irrésistible attrait pour l’ésotérisme et l’alchimie dont Daguerre fut un adepte comme de nombreux écrivains, Balzac, Victor Hugo ou Gérard de Nerval."
