Jan Dirk van der Burg & Stefanie Grätz, 2013
'After Mandela' is a photobook on Dutch tributes to Nelson Mandela by Jan Dirk van der Burg & Stefanie Grätz. There is no living person in the Netherlands, besides members of the royal family, that has so many public places named after him than Nelson Mandela. The praise and magnification are a result of the 'Mandela Magic', the so-called iconisation of Mandela, who became a brandname for reconciliation. The book contains a complete photographic inventory of places in The Netherlands named after South Africa's first black president.
