World Photo Day is an international photography event on August 19th that celebrates the passion for photography. World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Joseph Nicephore Niepce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”.
On this World Photo Day I am sharing some of my photos of how I see the world through my lens.
