The 180th Anniversary of the Photography

On Monday 19 August 2019 we celebrated the World Photography Day. On this day in 1839, the daguerreotype was officially presented to the members of the French Academy of Sciences. During the 180 years, photography has developed dramatically. Various techniques evolved, some of which did not reach any success, some are being used till today. Archives, museums as well as other institutions keep sometimes quite large collections of photographic material. Recently, attention has been paid to its research and preservation. The Department of Documentation of the IAH keeps a large photographic collection of about photographs.
