I few years back i posted a couple of articles about Adrian Steirn…a photographer and film-maker from Australia, but who’s now based in South Africa. He also happens to be a mate of mine and he’s back in the spotlight with a new project called 21 Icons celebrating the achievements of 21 South Africans. To kick off the project he got the priviledge to photograph Nelson Mandela and there is a short film with behind-the-scenes footage that you should see.
This is the portrait of the great man and Adrian explains why he chose the reflection of Madiba in the video below.
And here’s the short film.
Great stuff Adrian.
The project will feature in the Sunday Times in the upcoming months and you can also see more Adrian Steirns work at 21 Icons.
