Korske Ara, a passionate young photographer from Australia launched the World Photography Day Project. At 21 years old, Korske had the dream to unite local and global communities in a worldwide celebration of photography. Korske says he believes that "photography has the power to tell stories, inspire generations and initiate change in the world."
On August 19th 2010, World Photography Day hosted it's first global online gallery. With 270 photographs shared and website visitors from over 100 countries, World Photography Day was born.
