What is Photography?

Photography word literally means “drawing with light”. Supposedly the word was first coined in 1839 by the British scientist Sir John Herschel from the Greek words phos (genetive: photos) means “light” and graphe means “drawing or writing”. The photograph represented a view from a window at Le Gras (his hometown in Burgundy, France) captured on a pewter plate coated in bitumen diluted in lavender oil.

History of World Photography Day

World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Frenchmen Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1837. According to the reports, On January 9, 1839, the French Academy of Sciences announced about the Daguerreotype. About ten days later, on August 19, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift free to the world (without copyright). The Daguerre’s invention was named as the daguerreotype. It was an immediate success that provides a relatively inexpensive and accurate way of representing scenes and faces which previously had to be drawn or painted by hand. Within a few years, photographic studios had popped up all over Paris and indeed across the world.

When Napolean just arrived on St Helena in 1816, a Frenchman, Nicephore Niepce succeeded in capturing small camera images on paper treated with silver chloride which is another chemical sensitive to light. But like Wedgwood, he was not able to fix and preserve these images. He began experimenting with other light-sensitive substances. In 1822, Niepce invented a process and named it as “heliography” which is a Greek word meaning “sun drawing” from helios and graphe. He succeeded in making the earliest surviving camera photograph in 1826/7.
