Is there still optimism for photographers coming out of the pandemic situation?

but I may adjust this. But you know, we've I've seen a few things recently, a couple of surveys about how photographer discography with, we're focusing on that, that's what we do, how they've been really sort of decimated and how, you know, nine out of 10 or eight out of 10 have pretty much seen everything drop off. But I get a sense of optimism from you and from some of the other people I've spoken to for this episode. So would you say generally, you know, you feel you are optimistic and if people are doing the right sort of work, it will it will come back and they'll be able to make it. Or do you think there are sectors which have just been hit very, very hard within our world? Yeah, I think it depends what situation people are in. Um I suppose I'm more established but over the years even saying that it seems I'm established from a CV but it's always been inherently risky doing what I do and it's always been something, it's not exactly big bucks, you know, so I've managed to live on fumes over the years. Um, so I think it's just seeing that in the past, even there's these almost catastrophic challenges as newsrooms stopped hiring. Um, and that has changed actually over the years. So I do feel optimistic and it's, it's back to that thing. It's almost a little mantra my head that there is this moral need, there's an imperative for photographers to photograph, especially documentary, to see the world as it is and to help people to see the world and understand it. But also there's a need a market if you want to use that word, but it's a need for people to, to have a window on life beyond to see. There is hope, there's opportunities and also beauty. I mean it's not um it's not very popular word in contemporary art but that that is something which again through this pandemic people have craved and whether it's beauty in their garden through how they shape their hedge or just uh in distraction tv or art. So I do think there is um that's a universal need. Um I think photography can really speak into that. Yeah. Yeah. Mhm. Yeah.
