Millions of photographs are uploaded to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and more every minute of everyday, with everyone with a smartphone fancying themselves as David Bailey or Annie Leiobivetz.

The art form is having a renaissance in the 2010's thanks to dedicated photography auctions and the rise of the photography fair around the globe. Celebrate World Photo Day with just a few of Barnebys favorites.
