In honor of the death of South Africa’s great leader Nelson Mandela, I pulled these photographs out of my archive to post here.  Mandela came to Washington with his then wife Winnie and met with President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush among other American dignitaries.  I was working at the time for the French photo agency Sygma as a contract photographer based in Washington.
