When a picture really is worth a thousand words
In celebration of a great life 1918-2013 - Nelson Mandela photographed by VII's Ron Haviv
In 1994, VII photographer Ron Haviv joined Nelson Mandela on the election trail in the black African homeland of Transkei, where the picture above was taken. There will be many words written on the great man's passing today. We think Haviv's pictures - two of many of the African leader featured in Questions Without Answers - are a perfect visual representation of an extraordinary, epoch-making life. RIP Nelson Mandela.
