World Photography Day is observed on August 19 each year.This was the day in 1939 when the French government announced the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Louis Daguerre, as a gift to the “Free World.” Today, while a section of India ponders over the meanings of freedom and free speech, we at Pratham Books are delighted to be doing our bit to spread the joy of reading, by er.. freely.. sharing some of our pictures.
The photograph featured here is from our flickr stream. You can see Ryan Lobo's endearing grabs of children here. While you're there, you could also go through the stunning pictures that we got from our wonderful online community for the World Environment Day Contest.
Maybe you could show a nice photograph to a child today. Or strike a grand pose while a child takes your picture! Enjoy!
