  • Published at 05:17 pm August 19th, 2018

The day is celebrated throughout the world to celebrate the art of photography

August 19 is observed as “World Photography Day” with a motto to inspire the photographers across the planet: to share their world with the world.The day is also an annual celebration of the art, and science of photography.

History of the day originates back in 1837 when Frenchmen Louis Daguerre, and Joseph Nicephore Niepce developed "Daguerreotype," a photographic process. 

Joseph Nicéphore took the first photograph with a camera in 1826 or 1827, and the image was the view from an upstairs window at Niépce's estate, Le Gras, in the Burgundy region of France. The first durable color photograph was taken by Thomas Sutton in 1861. 

“World Photo Day,” an online platform to bring together millions of photographers around the world, hosted its first global online gallery on August 19, 2010. Almost 270 photographers shared their pictures, and people from over 100 countries visited the website.
