Nelson Mandela, Man of Destiny: A Pictorial Biography


In 1994, Nelson Mandela revisited Robben Island, where he spent nearly two decades. He was transferred from Robben Island to Pollsmoor Prison in 1982.

Madiba is embraced by emotional singer Brenda Fassie.


Preface :

Peter Magubane first started taking photographs of Nelson Mandela in 1955, but they actually met in 1956 during the Treason Trials.

It was to be many years before they met again, but on this occasion, it was a time of triumph and Magubane was able to spend ten years taking pictures of Nelson Mandela at his home in Orlando West.

Peter Magubane also went to the United States during Nelson Mandela's first visit there and photographed him with many of the famous Americans who clamoured to meet the world's famous statesman.
