The history of the camera can be traced back to the Middle Ages. Abu Ali al Hasan ibn al-Haytham, an Arab Muslim scholar born around 965, was the first to use the camera obscura, an optical device that consists of a dark room with a small hole. Light passes through the hole and projects an image of what is outside the room. Since the Middle Ages, numerous technological advances in photography have produced the modern day camera, which is now virtually accessible to everyone. In light of National Camera Day, we have invited two photographers based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming to answer questions about their photography experience.
