In 1957 Russell Kirsch of the United States National Bureau of Standards developed a rotating drum that would allow images to be scanned. This was the start of digital photography. The first image to be scanned using this device was a picture of Kirsch’s son. Photography was still a new art art form full of wonderment. Now the digital era was just starting and as we know, would turn into a new ever evolving world.
