Today we celebrate a very special day for most of us. World Photography Day. Where would we be without photography?
This form of art has evolved since the 1820’s, when the first picture was taken by French inventor Nicéphore Niépce with the title View from the Window at Les Gras.
At that time cameras required at least 8 hours of exposition. Even with some improvements the time of exposition was very long. That’s why people look grumpy in old pictures. Can you imagine holding a smile for 30 minutes?
Now in a split of a second we can take a selfie and share it with the world. We have definitely come a long way.
To celebrate this very special day for us, we would like to share the work of one of the best photographers in the world, Richard Bernabe.
Richard is an American who quitted his corporate job to dedicate his life to his true passion: the love for wilderness and its inhabitants.
Eleven years later, Richard is now one of the most renowned photographers in the world, having the traveled the globe to take pictures of our Beautiful Earth. Take a look at his website to see what we are talking about.
