What’s next for the jewellery photography industry
Posted by Breitbart News on March 13, 2019 06:09:54When you think of jewellery photographers, you probably think of the glamorous, glamorous types, of which the likes of Nadiya Hussain is one of them.
But the photographer has now decided to retire from the business, leaving her full-time job at the centre of the controversy.
Her parting shot was a poignant, and moving one, in the days following the announcement of her retirement from the industry.
We will all miss the jewellers that are no longer with us. “
I have been blessed to work on some of the most iconic and iconic photographs for years and I can’t thank the photographers for their passion and dedication.
We will all miss the jewellers that are no longer with us.
I hope that our industry can continue to provide a safe space for artists and photographers to continue to make jewellery.
For me, the next few years will be very difficult but with the support of all of you, I am sure that I will be back on the job in a few years.
I have enjoyed my time in the jeweller’s business and I hope that my future will not be limited to this career.
Thank you for your support.”
Nadiya’s post was shared nearly 2.8 million times and attracted more than 1.2 million likes.
The comments on her post are both encouraging and revealing of the state of the industry, and a testament to how much the media has overlooked the issues of racism, gender inequality and other discrimination faced by the profession.
“There is so much to be learnt from the experiences of other people of colour, especially in the industry,” Nadiyan wrote.
“It has always been about the artists themselves, but also the people of color that we love.”
“My goal has always always been to empower people of all backgrounds, to create images that represent us, our families, our communities, our history and the world we live in.”
Nadira said she was inspired by the diversity of her profession, and that her retirement would allow her to focus more on her work.
“I want to give back to my community, to the community that I love and the people that I work with,” she said.
“I love being able to give that back to the world and to the people in my community.”
Naderi said she had learnt from Nadiyas success story that “there are more jeweller’s photographers out there than there are people of any colour”.
“My focus is to continue working with the industry to be better and to be an advocate for the industry and its clients and the industry as a whole,” she wrote.
“The industry is an amazing place, full of talent and it is very important that we continue to support the artists and the profession in a positive and meaningful way.”
“In addition to my other jobs, I will continue to take photographs for the UK’s largest independent photography publication, Frieze, and my portfolio will continue through the years.
All of these are very important to me.”
Nadal and Naderi are currently working on a documentary about the jewelling industry, entitled Naderiyas Photography.
It is due out this spring.
