The Kid Should See This

Photography, from camera obscura to camera phone

With the proliferation of digital photography, kids know about posing for photos, taking photos, and browsing photos on phones. But how much do they know about the history of photo technologies? This TED Ed video, Illuminating photography: From camera obscura to camera phone by Eva Timothy and Andy London, is a great primer.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
