An acclaimed project inspired by, and featuring, Nelson Mandela, 21 Icons is an intriguing visual journey celebrating the lives, achievements and essential goodness of some of South Africa's greatest citizens. This candid collection of their personal stories and unique portraits reflects our country, its tapestry and, above all, its people.

As varied as the Rainbow Nation is colourful, 21 Icons offers exclusive access to a remarkable spread of characters. FW de Klerk in the lotus position, Philip Tobias before his passing, Desmond Tutu with a tutu, Nelson Mandela's last portrait sitting... From those who navigated South Africa out of the darkness of apartheid, to life-saving crusaders, inspirational artists and others fighting to converse South Africa's rich natural and cultural heritage, Adrian Steirn's portraits display a unique, trusting exchange of energy between a photographer and his subjects, capturing the essence of these incredible stalwarts with both creative wit and due respect.

This is a proudly South African book with a profoundly global message that celebrates the goodness in people.


" A bright future beckons. The onus is on us, through hard work, honesty and integrity, to reach for the stars."
Nelson Mandela
