We are delighted to host Matthew Willman as our guest speaker at our monthly meeting in Somerset West on 7 March.
Matthew is a Durban-based documentary photographer, author and speaker.
He has worked in 42 countries with clients such as Oxfam International, The World Health Organisation, and The Nelson Mandela Foundation, and has been commissioned to photograph individuals from a cross-section of the global community, including Nelson Mandela, US Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, President F W De Klerk, Annie Lennox, twelve other Presidents, eight Nobel Laureates and a host of sports personalities, musicians, politicians and philanthropists.
He made a significant contribution to the recording of the process of South Africa’s democratic change, both in his work as a commissioned photographer to the Nelson Mandela Foundation and through ten years of work with Mr Mandela himself.
In 2003 Matthew was commissioned to archive and document the life and times of Nelson Mandela and, over the years, this afforded him many incredibly intimate experiences with Madiba.
