If peace is accomplished we war photographers will lose our jobs

The Palestinian Israeli conflict has generated a huge diversity of jobs– military, human aid, human rights, conflict journalism, to name a few. What will happen if the conflict finally ends? Well, we’d like to find out.

Of course, many factors still prevent the peace, such as the demolition of Palestinian houses in East Jerusalem and the West Bank for Israeli settlements, and human rights violations by the Israeli army.

Despite the fact that 70% of our work as conflict photographers will vanish, that doesn’t mean we’ll have nothing to report on. For example, sports photography is something I really love. For those journalists who only work in conflict areas, they can always find a another place in the world to dodge bullets!
