Get an insight into the early days of photography!
Photography developed quite rapidly - from monochrome to colour photography, from analogue to digital images. Latvian Photography Museum for the third year in a row offers a look into the development of photography, to see and touch things, which made it possible to take a photo, or try to load a film into a camera.
