Celebrate World Photography Day with us!
Join the Forever team and all of the other photo-lovers around the world in celebrating World Photography Day, when we honor the day that the French government offered the first photographic technique, the Daguerreotype process, “free to the world” as a miraculous gift for archivists and storytellers alike.
Nearly two centuries later, photography is no less miraculous. With the more than one trillion photographs that will be produced this year, people everywhere will find almost infinite ways to share their stories. Some pictures will help us say hello to a friend and then disappear ten seconds later. Others will make their way into frames or books, where they’ll capture cherished family moments for years to come. And a select few will have the power to stop the whole world in its tracks, as we were reminded this week by the image of Usain Bolt's electric smile as he crossed the finish line in a 100m semi-final.
At Forever, we never cease to be amazed by the miracle of photography or all of the intriguing personal stories it can tell. That’s why we work so hard to give every photograph a safe and permanent online home for generations, and to give our members so many different ways to celebrate life’s most important moments.
In fact, here’s one more way: in honor of World Photography Day, you can download the Word Frames Baby & Child art kit for free from the Forever Digital Art Store now through Sunday. Regularly priced at $5.95, this kit provides a set of cute frames and accents for those precious first-year photographs.
