Today on 19 Aug 2019 marks World Photography Day. These images mark the exact day I found my love, my passion, my consolation, and my purpose when I picked up that Samsung camera phone and shot myself in one of those apart-hotels after a shoot for someone else. This shoot marks the day I found something that gives me fulfillment that's big enough to fuel me until old age. I can only hope that everyone has the opportunity to seek out what their heart really aches and wishes for.
Going as far back as 1837, World Photography Day originates from the invention of Daguerreotype, which is a photographic process developed by Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce in France. However, why is it exactly August 19 to celebrate? That's because this date commemorates the day French government purchased the patent for this photographic process and "announced the invention as a gift "free to the world"".
