Actress Deepika Padukone feels photographers are hardworking artistes who risk their lives for a perfect shot.

“I won’t say much but I will say we all have witnessed how hard you work every day. Sometimes I wonder why you guys work so hard. I mean — food, water or other utilities are one thing — but to put your life at risk every day makes me wonder. But after coming here I realise why. As people say, a photograph or picture says a thousand words,” said Deepika, while attending ‘Photography Awards 2020’ at Mumbai Press Club. She also distributed awards at the event.
