Tomorrow is World Photography Day

WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY DAY HISTORY

"The first World Photography Day was held on August 19, 2010. It was on this date that nearly 270 photographers shared their pictures in a global online gallery. People from over 100 countries visited the online gallery. This event marked the first official World Photography Day. The day is held August 19th as it’s the date in 1839 that the government in France purchased the patent for the Daguerreotype process. The French government called the invention of the Daguerreotype process a free gift to the world." (Source: https://nationaldaycalendar.com/world-photography-day-august-19/)
