The celebration of World Photography Day dates back to 1837 in France. By inventing the ‘daguerreotype, ’two French men named Joseph Nicephore Niepcce and Louis Daguerre created the first photography process. On January 19, 1837, the French Academy of Sciences formally proclaimed the development of the daguerreotype. It is thought that 10 days after the announcement, the French government acquired the patent for the innovation and handed it to the world as a gift with no copyright.
In honour of World Photography Day, Art of Superwoman profiled two young and amazing women photographers.
