ModSquad Celebrates World Photography Day
For nearly a decade, the international photography community has been celebrating World Photography Day on August 19th, trending #WorldPhotographyDay and #WorldPhotoDay on Twitter and Instagram, and launching campaigns to influence positive change across communities.
The date itself marks a historic watershed in the invention of photography. On August 19, 1839, French inventor Louis Daguerre presented his research on a process (daguerreotype) for capturing the physical world around him. Little did he know at the time, he would ignite a revolution that has since transformed the possibilities for photography. Even today, the way we use our mobile devices can be as much camera as it is phone.
As a digital engagement company with a global presence, we feel a special significance in World Photography Day, both in its acknowledgement of the power of content and in the potential for photography to help us connect in a digital world. In celebration, some of us at ModSquad shared photos of our hometowns from the United States to South America, across Europe, Asia, and beyond.
Here is a small snapshot. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this tour of our diverse environments and experiences.
