World Photo Day

World Photo Day

Photos are a great way to create memories! World Photo Day is an annual, worldwide celebration of the art, craft, science and history of photography.

Did you know, the photograph was originally made by Nicéphore Niépce, using silver chloride coating a piece of paper! In 1816 he produced the first image of nature, ‘a view from a window’ which depicted a view of the outdoors near his home.

Why not mark this day by snapping some of your own photos and creating some frames using our activities below!
