19th August is celebrated as World Photography Day all over the world, every year.
During the morning assembly, Mrs. Aiswarya, Faculty Science gave a talk about World Photography Day saying that this day is about celebrating the ability we have to communicate through this powerful visual medium – photographs. We can visit places without leaving our home. We can share adventures with friends in another city and we can watch grandchildren grow up thousands of Kms. away all through this visual medium. The French artist and physicist Louis – Jacques Mande Daguerre was recognized for his invention of photography and the first announcement of the photograph was made on 19th August 1839 and hence this day is celebrated very year as “World Photography Day”.
