Description

A snapshot photograph of Boy Scouts camping in a field, taken by an unknown photographer in about 1920. This photograph was taken with an Autographic Kodak camera which allowed exposure details to be written on the edge of the negative. Originally a shooting term, the word 'snapshot' was first linked with photography in the late 1850s, when it was used to describe a photograph taken with a brief exposure. Over time, snapshot came to mean any amateur photograph taken with a simple camera. The origins of popular photography can be traced back to George Eastman's [1854-1932] introduction of the first Kodak camera in 1888. Snapshots are informal, personal records of everyday life and experiences.
