GroupshowNELSON MANDELA // AFRICAN CROSSINGS

February 5, 2014March 15, 2014
Nelson Mandela (1918 – 2013) was one of the most influential personalities of the last century. He changed the history of South Africa and became a symbol of hope, willpower and peaceful protest. Jurgen Schadeberg accompanied the South African national hero for more than sixty years, creating numerous impressive portraits. He managed to capture Mandela’s character and aura like no other photographer. From February 5, Flo Peters Gallery will show a selection of Schadeberg’s most significant Mandela photographs – among them the scene of Mandela revisiting his cell on Robben Island in 1994 which became one of the most iconic pictures of the 20th century. Next to Schadeberg's Mandela portraits, Flo Peters Gallery will present Friederike von Stackelberg’s series „African crossings“, taken in occasion of a trip to the monolithic churches of Lalibela, a central pilgrimage site of the Ethiopian Copts. The photographs show the monumentality and peace of the rock-hewn cult places, the vast African landscape and portraits of the people’s beauty and spirituality.
