Hippopotas

On August 19, World Photography Day is observed across the world.

World Photography Day is all about celebrating photography, whether you are an amateur, hobbyist or a professional. However, it is important to understand the origin and the significance of this day! It originated after the invention of the Daguerreotype photographic processes, developed by Joseph NicephoreNiepce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. But on August 19, 1839, the French government announced the invention as the first practical gift to the world. In a way this was the true beginning of the World Photography Day.
