Photographing Nelson Mandela

It amazing what you find when cleaning out the studio during isolation , some old negatives that I had saved from a studio flood a few years back. This charity event had Nelson Mandela recently elected President of South Africa as the guest speaker. Charming eloquent and so humble in his power and wisdom, Mandibe took the time to greet each musician and waiter and at the end of the evening ,walked out through the kitchen thanking each person for their contribution to his meal. Almost 30 years later these images still give me so much inspiration to be the best human being I can be.
