"Photography is the simplest thing in the world, but it is incredibly complicated to make it really work." - Martin Parr
World Photography Day is observed on 19 August to pay homage to the history of photography, celebrate the present, and for future leave a positive trail.
It is hard to imagine a world without photography. Since the early 19th century, photography becomes an important part of life, an ever-increasing medium of personal expression and appreciation for countless people across the world.
The day generates awareness, share ideas, and encourage individuals in this field. It also encourages enthusiasts to express their feelings, emotions, and social thinking through their photography skills.
