No power to outlet and switch

I’ve been pondering this for a few weeks. So i have an outlet box with two wires-the feed wire and another 14/2 going directly to a light switch. The light switch is the end of the run having only a 2 wire. I have no power to the light switch nor the outlet. Curcuit is good having checked n renutted all wires in boxes i believe the feed wire from the dead outlet is running to. Anything to do with it possibly being switch loop having the hot from the feed spliced in with neutral of switch wire? Pic attached. Also the outlet has been replaced being that it was older n no longer is backstabbed..Thanks

The cable on the right is the hot feed. The cable on the left is a switch loop controlling this receptacle. The white wire connected to the black is not a neutral, it is the constant hot feeding the switch. If you have no power from the right cable, the problem is in a box that feeds this cable.
