Photography: Under African Skies!

©2005 Am Ang Zhang

This is the story of how we begin to remember
This is the powerful pulsing of love in the vein
After the dream of falling and calling your name out
These are the roots of rhythm
And the roots of rhythm remain
Under African Skies 

NYTimes: Paul Simon Takes Us Back
Simon.... was appalled by apartheid, but he bristled at the notion that, in collaborating with black South African artists on a synthesis that elevated their music and talents onto a world stage, he was hurting their national cause.
“When the artist gets into some sort of disagreement with politics,” Simon asks in the film, “why are the politicians designated to be the ones to tell us, the artists, what to do and we’re supposed to follow — otherwise we’re not good citizens or we’re not good?”
In the end, Simon and Tambo work through it all in the film and affirm that neither meant to hurt the other’s cause. Indeed, the A.N.C. has invited Simon and the Graceland band to perform for its centenary. But the just-released film (which will be shown at New York’s Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday) leaves no doubt where the South African musicians stood.

Nice photography done by u here.Recently i just took a handful of photos for my friend and they came out immaculate(i have a good camera, and i know my way around photography). I've always had a deep love with photography and i was thinking of how i can start making money and/or spreading the word that I'm trying to become a professional/semi-professional photographer to where i can make money off it?
