The date was chosen to honour the development of this photographic process by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre in the year 1837 on the same date. It was also the same date in 1839 on which the French government had purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift quoting “Free to the World.” Earlier to Daguerreotype, Nièpce had captured the permanent photograph in 1826 using the process called Heliography. It was called ‘View from the Window at Le Gras.’ The daguerreotype is permanent photography that used silver chloride coating on a piece of paper. But those photos would later turn into black due to the effects of silver chloride.

Over the years, before and after the invention of Daguerreotype photography, photographs have crossed lots of development. Not only the photography got better, but with the digital invention, the instruments and devices like the camera have been made lighter, simpler and are easy to use. World Photo Day had hosted its first global online gallery on August 19, 2010. About 270 photographers had shared their pictures and the website had been visited by people from over 100 countries. It marked the first official, globally reaching World Photo Day.


The thought of capturing moments in the frame but came to human heads a long time ago. From the early eighteenth century, scientists became so busy searching for something that could capture any moment of human or nature.

On January 5, the French Academy of Sciences announced the invention of a photographic medium. The name of this method is Daguerreiro type. After several tests, they brought the process to the forefront on August 7, a few months later.

Scientist Luis Daguir first discovered this method of taking pictures. Daguerreiro type photography is named after his name. A public meeting was held at the French Academy of Sciences, Paris on August 7, and showed everyone how to take pictures in this way. In just a few days the popularity of Daguerreiro type photography has spread all over the world.

How to celebrate Photography Day

Every year this year is celebrated as World Photographic Day to commemorate the day when Daguerreiro type photography was released.

Why not go out and snap a few pictures yourself? Find an older camera, and enjoy the feel, and look, of 35mm film. Walk around and snap some pictures to preserve the time in photographic form. Make a collage, which is a mixture of pictures, sometimes cut into different shapes than the usual rectangles of photos. Go snap some wildlife, either in the wild or at a zoo. Maybe some family photos wouldn’t be out of the question; and you could even use them in the yearly holiday cards in place of the stock sitting stills. Or go see a museum about photography, if you have one nearby to visit.
