Hubbard’s Cave – Chicago 2017


The word “photography” was created from the Greek roots  (phōtos), “light” and (graphé) “representation by means of lines” or “drawing” – together meaning “drawing with light”.

The 1st use of the word photography was in 1839 when the phrase “picture obtained by photography,” was coined by Sir John Herschel from photo- + -graph instrument for recording; something written.
