COVID-19 Pandemic has sidelined many photographers in their work. Photographers around the country have had to find different ways to continue working, whether it be paid or for free. Many states have deemed photography work non-essential leaving freelancers unable to go out and obtain clients and make money.
This is when photography turns to journalism and storytelling. We hear the stories of photographers going out and documenting the times during COVID-19, and of course now the protests for George Floyd.
Life During Quarantine
One great thing for photographers who’ve been struggling to find work have found an outlet. A project started by photographers Hannah Yoon and Charlotte Schmitz has brought together a collaborative of 400 photographersworldwide documenting life during quarantine. “The Journal has become a system of support and motivation for hundreds of photographers scattered across the globe who are losing income, are isolated…”
No matter what career you’re in, many of us are losing income doing what we do. Not everyone has the opportunity to be deemed essential business, which means for those who are still working, we need to band together to help those in need.
