Nelson Mandela's Last Photo Shoot

The Weekly Flickr

In this episode of The Weekly Flickr, we profile South African photographer Adrian Steirn, who sat down with Nelson Mandela. Shortly before he retreated from public life in 2011, Mandela participated in Adrian’s 21 Icons project - a photographic series profiling the men and women who shaped modern South Africa. This photoshoot would become one of the very last portrait sittings with the former president.
