The World Of Photography

From the birth of practical photography around 1839, Humans have been mystified and obsessed with capturing images and essentially, freezing time.

Louis Daguerre developed the first commercially viable photographic process,to which his namesake is applied: The Daguerreotype.  From then forth the idea and practice of photography exploded around the world.  New forms and mediums were contantly invented, new process tried, new art created.  

In this section of our site, we present to you a vast array of photographic examples from mediums spanning from the 1840s to the World War II era.

Little moments in time, preserved forever.
