In today’s age, billions of photographs are uploaded to the internet. We’re accustomed to it. It’s the norm. However, like anything on this planet, it started somewhere and some time. Photography was invented in 1822, 39 years before the opening shots of the American Civil War. Digital photography made its appearance 48 years ago. Comparing this, you can say digital photography has been barely a thing even though it’s something that’s such a staple in today’s world. But to those that lived in the mid-19th century, photography was a thing of magic.
