For several years anytime I go by slums and worse-than-korle-lagoon areas in the US, I keep thinking "next time I will carry a camera and take pictures for all in African countries to see".
It hurts that some of the pictures used by foreign media that denigrate our continent, are taken by our own people. I guess they have cameras and need the income.
I wonder if it is a tough choice for them to make when they get such contracts.
It would be tough for me to sell pictures of my dirty room to anyone. Can't imagine doing that to my country. That is probably why I suck at photography.
