" Anniversary "
Yes, as we all know, photography was born on January 7, 1839, and it seems it was invented separately and simultaneously by two men who would never meet: William Henry Fox Talbot, an English scientist who invented the “Calotipia” process, and Jacques Louis Mande Daguerre, a French painter who fixed the first fleeting image and whose process he named “Daguerreotipia”!
At the beginning the role of photography was more to record rather to interpret and the aesthetic quality of photographs was judged by how closely it resembled a painting, but on the twentieth century some photographers began to see themselves as artists and nowadays, a photograph once published, can be immediately seen around the Globe and, obviously, can also be endlessly re-examined and interpreted, so its great popularity means that photography had to struggle to gain public recognition as an art form, although, for some critics, that recognition is still far away from reality!

This is my photograph #200.
Best regards and many thanks for your support and kind comments.
