World Photography Day 2021 - Pandemic Through the Lens
Date: 19th August, 2021
August 19 is celebrated as World Photography Day, a day to pay keep the history of photography alive and create a positive trail for the future. We all know that France was a pioneer country in the world of photography, which gave the world, the first photographic processes. It was in the year 1839 that Louis Daguerre invented the daguerreotype, a photographic process at a time when the world could never have anticipated that a moment could be captured permanently through a photograph. In 1826, Niepce captured the earliest known permanent photograph known as “View from the Window at Le Gras” using a process called heliography. As early as 1839, American Robert Cornelius clicked a selfie. Cornelius set his camera up, took the image by removing the lens cap and then running into frame. On the back, he wrote “The first light picture ever taken 1839”.

The first digital photograph was taken in 1957; almost 20 years before Kodak’s engineer invented the first digital camera. In 1861, the first colour photograph appeared on the scene by Thomas Sutton.

From them on, we have been capturing beautiful instances and visuals as long lasting memories. Then the old photography themes were shelved entirely to make way for sophistication, filters, effects and 3D visualization treats. On August 19, 2010 World Photo Day hosted its first global online gallery in which almost 270 photographers shared their pictures and people from over 100 countries visited the website. This marked the first official, globally reaching World Photo Day.

In commemorating this wonderful day, the department of Professional Accounting and Finance announces the Photography contest for its students. Let us all celebrate this wonderful day. Happy World Photography Day!
