Matthew Willman | Motivational Speaker

Perhaps one of Matthew Willman greatest achievements was his significant contribution to the recording of the process of South Africa’s democratic change.

 

This occurred both in his work as a commissioned photographer to the Nelson Mandela Foundation and through ten years working with Mr Mandela himself. 

 

In 2003 Matthew Willman was commissioned to archive and document the life and times of Nelson Mandela for the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

 

Over the years this afforded him many incredibly many intimate experiences with a man who for Willman embodies the very spirit and conviction we all possess as South Africans.

 

Matthew Willman collection of work is now central to the Mandela Centre of Memory & Presidential Library in Johannesburg.
