are photographers, artists (sketchers, painters) selfish? in a way they contribute nothing to the world. I mean who needs them?

Photographers are indeed useful, and art itself is transitioning to a digital canvas that better recognizes your Photoshop/Illustrator skills than fine motor skills and coordination on paper.
I was invited to an animation studio (after making impressive character sketches for a pilot) to observe how cartoons are made, and I didn't see people hard at work with pencil sharpners at their side. They used digital screens with styluses.
Sure, pencil and paper have their place, but when it comes to having a career, you need to get industry-grade skills. Painting on a canvas might be dying, but creativity is not dead and never will die.0
