Footnotes

  • Literature:
    R.P. Seippel (ed.), Jürgen Schadeberg, (Cologne & Johannesburg, 2008), illustrated pg. 52.

    Here Schadeberg captures Nelson Mandela revisiting the cell on Robben Island:

    "This was Mandela's first official visit after his release from prison in 1990 and obviously an emotional visit when he returned to the cell he spent 17 years of his 27 year sentence. He looked out of the bars and when he thought I had finished taking pictures, relaxed somewhat, and turned around to smile." (Jürgen Schadeberg)
