YPS Member Exhibition

World Photography Day is celebrated throughout the world on August 19th in celebration of art, science and glory of photography. It is on this day in 1839 that the French Government made the Daguerreotype photographic process, invented by Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce, "Royalty Free" to the entire world. Thanks to this gesture millions of memories are frozen into frames every day. Historic Moments have been preserved in vivid memory. Life can be revisited in pictures. Natural History is documented for future generations. And the list of uses is endless.

Youth Photographic Society Bangalore celebrates World Photography Day every year. The World Photography Day 2019 will be celebrated by a showcase of photographs of YPS Members to demonstrate the talent and possibilities. The Exhibition will be held at Chitrakala Parishath on August 17, 2019, Saturday and August 18, 2019, Sunday.
