You may have noticed that today's Google Doodle (the logo atop the Google homepage) is a picture of a 35mm film camera celebrating Zofia Nasierowska, a Polish photographer who would’ve been celebrating her 85th birthday. Known best for her portraits of influential Polish people, her passion for the art form was influenced by her father from an early age. 

Considered one of the most significant Polish photographers of her years, Zofia picked up a camera aged just seven years old. Her father, Eugeniusz Nasierowski, was also a well-known photographer, and just four years after she started learning photography she landed her own exhibition.
