The Nelson Mandela Photographic Collection

9. Nelson Mandela (speaking), University of Sydney, Sydney – 2000

The collection of 10 photographs shown here cover both Nelson Mandela’s appearance at the Centre for the Mind’s What Makes a Champion?™ forum in the Great Hall of the University of Sydney in September, 2000 and at a private meeting with the Organising Committee at the Hilton Hotel where Professor Snyder presented Mandela with the Centre for the Mind’s Millennium Fellow Medal.

The photographs suggest a man who belies his extraordinary powers of oratory and inspiration with a demeanour characterised by humility, warmth, humour, compassion, pleasurable engagement and quiet reflection. In keeping with the Olympics theme, Mandela told his Sydney audience that he once had pretensions to be a boxing champion. What his speech delivered, however, was a sense of how far he had come in his struggle as a fighter for freedom and dignity.

The Nelson Mandela Photographic Collection by David Moore has been released in a limited edition of 90. The first 10 numbers in the edition will be sold as a set of 10 photographs.
