Photographer's Note

"I look forward to that period I will be able to wake up with the sun: to walk the hills and valleys of my country village, Qunu, in peace and tranquility." Nelson Mandela 1997.

I continue in Mandela`s footsteps. This time from the same district where he was born in 1918. In this area were built a house for him when he became president of South Africa in 1994. This picture was taken on a Mandela-museum not far from his home.

To me this photograph stands like a symol on Mandela`s long struggle for justice and peace - from a dark past towards a brighter future.
