Hot off the press, check out Vsauce's video aptly titled How Many Photos Have Been Taken, where the team tries to calculate the total number of photographs taken since the invention of the camera (analogue and digital) and also give us some perspective of what these numbers mean.
So, how many photos are on the Lomography site? Over 10,000,000 that’s right, more than ten million. Why can’t we give you the accurate number? Because this very instant, lomographers around the world are still uploading photos to their homes. And how many photos are uploaded every day? Around 10,000 . This calculation stuff and Vsauce's enthusiasm are too contagious!
So, how many photos do you take a day and how many do you upload to your home?
