How do you celebrate photography in your everyday life?
Held every 19th of August, World Photography Day is a celebration of photography as a powerful visual medium. It originated from the discovery of the Daguerreotype by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre. On August 19, 1939, the French government bought the patent for the Daguerreotype and declared it as a gift “Free to the World.”
