Photography — A Window On The World

Since its humble beginnings in the early 19th century, photography has been offering us a unique perspective on the world around us. Whether it’s a place, an experience, an idea or a moment in time, photography gives us the opportunity to learn more about events, places, and people that we might not ever encounter in our everyday lives.

19th August marks World Photography Day, a global celebration of the history and art of photography. The date recognises the invention of the Daguerrotype, a process devised by France’s Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre in 1837, which became the forerunner to the modern-day photography that we know today. For the first time, Daguerre’s technique offered people the means to accurately capture and preserve history instead of relying on lengthy and imperfect methods such as painting.

Today, photography remains one of the most powerful storytelling and documentary mediums available. It enables us to connect with people and raise awareness in a way difficult to capture in words. Whether it’s images from the latest warzone or pictures from the far side of the galaxy, photography allows us to experience the world like never before.

Our relationship with photography has also changed. Today, we can take and share images on our smartphones and devices in a way Daguerre could only have dreamt of nearly 200 years ago. In short, everyone has become a photographer making PR for photographers more important than ever.
