The Camera Obscura
The camera obscura was one of the early developments of photography and it meant "Dark Room" in Latin. It was invented around the 13th-14th centuries.
It was a medium to large box depending of what they want to capture but it had a tiny hole which would project the object it was pointing toward upside down and the person working it would trace the projection.
Photography has changed the world and shaped it into something amazing.
This is a photo of the bow of the sunken ship, the Titanic. This is located at a depth of 12,000 feet in the Atlantic ocean.
Photography gives you the opportunity to see things you probably wouldn't see without a photo taken of them such as this image here.
Photography brings people together
People connect through photography by having the same interests/styles of photos
A project called "The Humans Of New York" was created by Brandon Stanton. It has allowed him to hear many stories/ quotes from random people around New York then publishing them to his blog or book for many others to hear and relate to these stories
This photo known worldwide as "The Afghan Girl" may just look like a girl with vibrant green eyes and a headscarf on, but there's a story behind her.
She has had a hard life, at a young age her parents were killed in a Soviet bombing and she had to care for her sisters and grandmother since that.
Photography has made a way for stories to be told without any words spoken.
