Today, when technology has reached its highest point of development in human’s history, when you can easily acquire a quality camera for a pretty small sum of money, we could conditionally say that it is easy to be a photographer. But, about hundred years ago, It wasn’t so easy to be a photographer, actually, it was pretty tough job.
At the very beginning of the photography, cameras weren’t so small and cute as they are today, they were huge and they weighted dozens of kilos. Taking photo was a nightmare too. You had only one chance for a perfect shot, unlike these days when you can take thousands of photos and chose only the best one.
Albert Khan was a photographer in those times and he was one amongst the first who chose photographing as their profession.
Those photos which you are watching right now were took by him between 1909 and 1931.
