World Photography Day is observed on August 19 each year. The day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Louis Daguerre which was announced by the French Academy of Sciences on January 9, 1839. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government announced the invention as a gift to the “Free World."
