React.useState does not reload state from props

The argument passed to useState is the initial state much like setting state in constructor for a class component and isn't used to update the state on re-render
If you want to update state on prop change, make use of useEffect hook
function Avatar(props) {
  const [user, setUser] = React.useState({...props.user});

  React.useEffect(() => {
      setUser(props.user);
  }, [props.user])

  return user.avatar ? 
         (<img src={user.avatar}/>)
        : (<p>Loading...</p>);
}

const [images, setImages] = useState<Photo[]>(photos)
useEffect(() => {
setImages(photos)
}, [photos])

About GraphQL - Downside

Web caching complexity

File uploading. Since GraphQL doesn’t understand files, a file uploading feature is not included in its specification. You won’t have to deal with this limitation in case of REST, as there you can POST or PUT whatever content you want to.
To allow file uploads in your GraphQL web app, there are several options: using Base64 encoding. But it will make the request larger and expensive to encode/decode.making a separate API endpoint just for this purpose.using a library like Apollo for implementing the GraphQL multipart request specification.uploadFileToS3:combineResolvers( // isAuthenticated, async (parent, args, { models }) => { const { file } = awaitargs const { createReadStream, filename, mimetype, encoding } = awaitfile conststream = createReadStream() constresult = awaituploadFileToS3(filename, stream) returnresult } ),
