World Photography Day
19 August world Photography Day
Since the early 19th century, photography has become an ever-increasing medium of personal expression and appreciation for countless people around the world.
A photograph has the ability to capture a place; an experience; an idea; a moment in time. For this reason, it’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Photographs can convey a feeling faster than, and sometimes even more effectively than words can. A photograph can make the viewer see the world the way the photographer sees it.
Photographs even transcend the passing of time – a photo from a hundred years ago can still be as appreciated now, as it was then. A photo taken tomorrow, can still be just as appreciated by others in a hundred years’ time.
