'If there is one man whose life is all about resisting it is Nelson Mandela. Fist in the air, he gave this word a new meaning; rising so far and above hatred, racism, tribalism, injustice, selfishness. His figure is now contested, and his heritage questioned within the border of his homeland, but his aura is undeniable. I was lucky enough to have photographed him a couple of times and his aura was thick like a warm coat. I understood that the culture of resistance is both political and intimate. By simply looking at someone he could make you feel you can, you have to be your better self. Amandla!' - Bénédicte Kurzen
