World Photography Day 2021 Celebration with these Contests.
World Photography Day 2021 is a day that brings together people who have a passion for taking pictures and sharing their ideas with the world. Photographers, like historians, also record the present to help future generations understand it.
However, we shared wishes for World Humanitarian Day 2021 and its history yesterday. But today is a day of celebration for creativity. The evolution of technology has made photography more linear. Everyone now owns a camera.
However, very few images are created from lenses that accurately capture the moment. It is still surprising that so many people have access to photography.
The invention of the daguerreotype was the catalyst for the creation of World Photography Day. It was the first commercially successful photographic process invented by Louis Daguerre. The French Academy of Sciences announced the invention on August 19, 1839.
Roland Barthes, a French essayist, describes a photograph as a repetition of time that has occurred once. “Photography mechanically repeats the impossible.”
