Mandela gets a Grammy

The Soweto Gospel Choir meet with Nelson Mandela at his foundation in Johannesburg to show him their Grammy they won for best traditional world music album.Everytime I shoot Nelson Mandela, the light is brutal, there is a bunch of photographers, TV guys and a few reporters with stars in their eyes. It's always a bit of a squeeze... the ruck, as I refer to it, where everyone jossles for the best position before he comes out, but as soon as he does everything changes and the good positions become bad, so my strategy is to simply wait at the back and shoot through all the heads...

It's worked everytime so far.
