The advent of modern photography began 175 years ago today. Photography has come a long way in that time, and to showcase that progress, we’ve assembled an infographic touching on the history of this medium.
Starting with the first recorded photograph on paper in 1839 and finishing with the exciting future unfolding with light field photography, the infographic takes you through the twists and turns photography has taken over nearly two centuries to become the advanced technological marvel it is today.
From Philippe Kahn and Gabriel Lippman to Kodak and Polaroid, we wanted to acknowledge the individuals and companies that helped this art form take shape and made it possible to preserve the world’s happenings forever.
