In an era of falling newspaper sales, it was interesting (and brave) to see a new print newspaper hit the market. The New Day launched at the end of February, only lasting nine weeks. I did get some commissions from them (one example above), I was impressed with the way they used the images.
It's a shame (and a surprise) to see it close so quickly, they had some good photography, even a page dedicated to the day's best photo- very rare to see these days.
It's a tough market and it's hard to see new print based newspapers becoming a roaring success in the present climate. That said, The New Day didn't seem to have any time to establish itself at all, before being pulled.
I hope everyone who worked on the paper finds new opportunities/employment quickly. Good luck!

I've been a photographer for quite a long time now. So hopefully I have something to say about it.
