The birth, growth and history of photography into what we know it to be today! 

The formalized means of photography has been around since the 1800s and ever since then, the nature and technology related to photography has been fast changing. With most of us having started photography on a digital system, it becomes all the more difficult to understand the history of photography and its origins.

In this five-minute YouTube video by Cooperative of Photography, you’ll see the entire history of photography laid out for us to comprehend – the pin-hole camera, the first photoshopped image and the evolution of cameras and image processing techniques.

While there are a lot of missing instances in the timeline, this effort by COOH is definitely a start in getting the history out there for all to see!
