Madiba Lives On
I would really like a Mandela t-shirt. When I asked this young man if I could make a portrait of him he asked me why. I mentioned the stall and that he had caught my eye as I drove past. I then said that his t-shirt was what really made me stop. And that was the end of the negotiation. It was obvious to him and his friends why I wanted to make the photograph.
And if there is any proof needed that the great Nelson Mandela's influence lives on in South Africa, there it is.
