What does Mandela mean to you?

Cape Town photographer Eric Miller recently did a road trip through various provinces of South Africa taking photographs for a book he is working on. While doing so he also created a short video of South Africans from all walks of life responding to his question: What does Mandela mean in your life?

“The video was a little pet project I wanted to do, for myself, and as a personal small tribute to Mandela & his impending birthday,”writes Eric.

We wish Madiba a happy birthday and extend our enormous gratitude for his life and for the tremendous and positive role he has played in South Africa’s history.
