  1. Julia,
    Your words, as well as your photography, are inspirational. Not since the Spanish Flu of 1918-1919, when 50 million people died world wide, have we faced such a health crisis. But science is much better equipped now to deal with this pandemic, so Hope must sustain us, that science will eventually get this contained, assuming we all act responsibly. We’re in uncharted waters, but Hope and optimism will help get us through. In the meantime, best wishes to you and your daughter that circumstances allow your inspirational voice and images to continue to so positively influence the world of Photography.

    1. Sam, I completely agree with you. We are living challenging times but I have trust in science that it will help us get through this without too many people suffering. And we need to do our part too, of caring for others so to avoid for things to get worse especially for people who are exposed. I hope you and your family are doing fine. Take care, stay safe and thank you for the good thoughts.

  2. Hi, Julia:

    Thanks for such a long article, I have been following up the news since January, and of course being a photographer that too lead to all workshops cancelled.

    I have always kept a Zen mind, but starting to feeling comprehensive lately. I always looking at situation from an outside point of view, and I can see so many lives and business will take a huge hit because of this abrupt first scenario lingers into the future.

    I kept my silence for a lot longer, still have not yet talk about this publicly. I am absorbing everything, how individuals react, how politicians and countries respond.

    It’s more apparent, that how everything is interconnected, no matter which corner of the world we are coming from, and above all, our responsibilities to other living things on this planet too. This virus no longer just us fighting for lives, but same time, our believes, and to reconnect again with the kindness and pureness of our heart.

    I send my sincere thanks for your inspiration and all my love over the coming months…….

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful response, Juanli. Indeed, we are all interconnected and, if nothing else, this is what this crisis is showing us. That when we don’t care for the other, in the end it means we don’t care for ourselves. Maybe what we are living now will open our eyes to understand that we need to support each other for this world to continue being what we want it to be. Many people are suffering now and many will suffer in the near future, many lives will change and I just hope that we are going to overcome it sooner rather than later. It also depends on all of us what kind of world we will wake up to when all this is over. For now, take care and stay safe.

  3. Thank you for the article, Julia. Your genuine compassion and concern come through. You are inspirational in many ways. We do need to come together. We have a common enemy now, but still there is too much partisanship and nationalism. As one of the “less young” my livelihood does not depend on photography, but the treat to my health and those in my family and community, and threats to my financial state and that of all, are of great concern. All the best to you and your daughter, and to all those that are facing effects from this pandemic…which in one way or another, great or small, will be each of us.

    1. Thanks to you, Thomas, for your beautiful words. I hope things are going to go well for you and for everyone and we are going to get out of this challenge as soon as possible and without too much suffering. We will all be affected one way or the other but the most important is to stay safe and healthy. Take care and I wish you and your family all the best through these challenging times.
