World Photography Day is celebrated every year on 19th August. Giri Stills and team celebrates the World Photography Day along with photography lovers all around the world, past and present.
World Photo Day originates from the invention of the photographic process called Daguerreotype. This process was developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce 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”.
