The widespread availability of Kodak cameras, starting in 1888, was a major factor in democratizing the practice of photography. There was no more need for special skills or training: "You Press the Button, We Do the Rest," as the Kodak ads said. Since then, consumers and producers of photographs have become one and the same amid a proliferation of images and goods.
