Photography is an extremely rich art form with an equally rich history that stretches from the centuries before Christ to well into the future, but that didn’t stop the Cooperative of Photography from condensing it all into less time than a commercial break. The fruit of their effort is called The History of Photography in 5 Minutes.
As promised, The History of Photography in 5 Minutes covers everything from the first camera obscura in 400 BC up to today’s photography-saturated smartphone landscape in just five minutes (well, five minutes and 13 seconds, but I’ll allow it). There’s also room for info on the world’s first selfie in 1839, photo manipulation, and much more.
Check out The History of Photography in 5 Minutes below. And for more cool photography video content where that came from, the Cooperative of Photography (or COOPH for short) can be found at the organization’s official channel on YouTube right here.
