Rare Images Of Nelson Mandela’s Life On Exhibit (Video)

A new exhibition in New York chronicles Nelson Mandela's easy charm and appeal through some rarely seen before photos taken by South African photojournalist Benny Gool, who covered Mandela's public and private life for more than 30 years.

The exhibit includes photographs of Mandela taken with the Dalai Lama, Princess Diana and pop star Michael Jackson. But it is the photograph of Mandela with 13-year-old Willem Venter, taken in 1997, is Gool's favorite.

The show opened at the POP International Galleries in Manhattan on February 13th.
