Matthew Willman is a documentary photographer, author and speaker who has emerged as one of South Africa’s leading young independent artists. He has expressed himself through an extraordinary body of work which has included writing, storytelling and photographic exhibitions.
 
Willman has gained over 18 years of experience working for some of the world’s foremost institutions in the field of visual communication, development, visual arts and leadership. A true global citizen, Willman has worked in 42 countries tailoring his inventive brand of communication to the needs of an array of clients which have included: Oxfam International, The World Health Organisation, The Nelson Mandela Foundation, The Vodacom Foundation, The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Robben Island Museum and The European Commission.
 
Perhaps one of Willman’s greatest achievements was his significant contribution to the recording of the process of South Africa’s democratic change. This occurred both in his work as a commissioned photographer to the Nelson Mandela Foundation and through ten years of work with Mr Mandela himself.  In 2003 Matthew was commissioned to archive and document the life and times of Nelson Mandela.
