Canada-based photographer George Qua-Enoo asked the people of South Africa to transcribe their feelings about Nelson Mandela in honor of his passing. Originally born in Ghana, Qua-Enoo immigrated to South Africa not long before Mandela was elected president in 1994. Like most Africans, Qua-Enoo feels Mandela’s life and actions have radically affected his own. When it was announced that Mandela had passed at the age of 95, Qua-Enoo took to the streets of Pretoria, speaking with dozens about the impact Mandela had on them and his place in their lives. The result is a series of portraits and words dedicated to the man who changed history forever and won the hearts of millions.
