-William Wylie William Wylie William Wylie is a modern-day metaphorical photographer

In his work, Wylie focuses on themes and issues of landscape and place.

For more than four years Wylie chronicled the changing light along the 150-mile river, which runs from the Continental Divide to the Missouri River. Pictures Captured by William Wylie Summary The History of Photography Photography has evolved from experimentations with chemicals and lighting, to an art form admired by the world. It has become much more complex and technical and there is much more to explore with in photography in this day in age.
Over time, photography gained popularity, and soon became a way to make a living, or just as a hobby. People began opening studios, and stores. Jobs were created doing things such as journalism to help tell a story, or record events. History of Photography cont... The Eastman Kodak Company, and other comopedator businesses were big influences on the technology in photography we use today. They helped keep the interest alive and the curiosity for discovering more about cameras, and advancing the products to what we use today. These businesses made photography an accessable hobby to persue for regular people, rather than primarily professionals.

Photography has become a big part of history, and it is often something we take for granted. It is an art form. There is a lot of room for creativity and originality with photography. It is a big part of our lives and should remain a valued part of our history.
