World Photography Day

Friday, 19th AugustĀ  2022

World Photography Day is an annual worldwide celebration of the art, craft, science, and history of photography.

It recognises the way a photograph captures the essence, emotion, and mood of a specific moment in time.

The Frenchman Joseph Nicephore Niepce took the first permanent photograph of an object in 1826.

The theme of World Photography Day 2022 is "Pandemic Lockdown Through the Lens."

Share your best photos on social media using the hashtag #WorldPhotographyDay.

A photograph can express what words cannot. Have a wonderful World Photography Day!
