As a photographer, l have been going through hard times that are never seen in my life. Suffering from depression of food shortages, lack of medical supplies and because of not going to work. In my country Zimbabwe we are under lockdown which means as an artist l am not allowed to wonder around taking photographs.
This means this pandemic COVID-19,has been a problem to and it is causing wounds in my heart. I feel like my heart is bleeding, thinking of how this problem will end in order to get free and to be allowed to go back to the streets taking photographs to earn income. I feel like l am in a confined area. Time is flying as a student l am lagging because l can not learn new things.
