Photographer's Note

R.I.P. Mr Nelson Mandela (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013).

On facing the death penalty, Nelson Mandela spoke from the dock at the culmination of the Rivonia Trial in April 1964

During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to see realised. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die

This shot was taken at Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton South Africa where a larger than life bronze sculpture of Mandela watches over the comings and goings of the people.
