Love of Music

A young cellist holds her instrument as Your Shot photographer Graham de Lacy takes her portrait. De Lacy got five minutes with each member of the Buskaid Soweto String Orchestra in Johannesburg, South Africa-- an after school music program that gives disadvantaged kids the chance to learn an instrument. De Lacy says his goal in photographing the students "was to capture the relationship each musician has with their instrument." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
