The date of August 19 was chosen as World Photography Day to commemorate the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Frenchmen Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1837. On 19th August 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced Daguerreotype free to the world as a gift. This event was an important step in the development of modern-day photography.
On August 19, 2010 World Photo Day (WPD) hosted it’s first global online gallery. People from over 100 countries visited the website and almost 270 photographers shared their pictures. This is marked as the first official, globally reaching World Photo Day.
I believe that photography has the power to tell stories, inspire generations and create positive impact in the world
