Every year, August 19 is commemorated as World Photography Day. Globally, there is an annual celebration of the history, art, and science of photography. The art of photography is celebrated on this day, and those who have a similar passion for it are also inspired. It also encourages a lot of people to pursue photography as a career.
I understand that the French Academy of Sciences officially unveiled the rangefinder camera to the public in 1839. On August 19, 1839, after it became widely known about the invention, it is believed that the French government obtained the patent for the gadget. Later, World Photography Day was established as an annual event on August 19.
Make sure to use the hashtag #WorldPhotographyDay when sharing your best (selfie) photo on social media, as I did.
Happy Worldwide Photographic Celebration!
