The end of the nineteenth century marked a dramatic increase in popular participation in photography because of technical improvements largely due to one man, George Eastman (1854–1932). Eastman revolutionised photography with the introduction of the Kodak Camera in 1888. By offering a total package of camera, film, and processing, Eastman eliminated at a stroke all the fuss and aggravation that had formerly been associated with photography.
