World Photography Day: Is a picture worth a thousand words?

Today, August 19th, World Photography Day is celebrated. Photography plays a fundamental role in communication, after all, who has never heard the iconic “a picture is worth a thousand words”? Photography is, without a doubt, one of the most extraordinary human inventions

In general, anyone can understand the information contained in an image, regardless of their education or culture. Over time, photography has become an essential element in human communication.

Photographs are temporal memories that can be used as a form of artistic expression. And, of course, there are still those who make photography a profession.

The introduction of digital technology in recent years has dramatically changed the paradigms that guide the world of photography. The simplification of the processes of capturing, storing, printing and reproducing images is frankly superior to the time of analog photography.

World Photography Day is celebrated annually on August 19th. The celebration of the date comes from the invention of the daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Louis Daguerre in 1837.
