Happy World Photography Day 2013

Turned out it happened to be the World Photography Day today.

The Origins of this day based on http://www.worldphotoday.org/

World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”.

Another photographic processes, the Calotype, was also invented in 1839 by William Fox Talbot (it was announced in 1841). Together, the invention of both the Daguerreotype and Calotype mark 1839 as the year that photography was invented.

Over 170 years later, we have chosen this date, August 19th to celebrate photography, It’s past, present and future, technologically and artistically.
