'Shot in Joburg': Homeless youth trained as photographers

Downtown Johannesburg is a tough place to be homeless.

"I was shot in Joburg" is a studio that teaches formerly homeless youngsters how to take photographs of their neighbourhood and make a profit from it.

BBC News went to meet one of the project's first graduates.
