Platon’s Powerful Portrayal of World Leaders

His name is Platon, an American photographer whose work was featured on Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN.

If you’ve clicked on the link, you’ll see that Platon and his lense has gotten more up close and personal with our contemporary world leaders than most people would ever dream.

What I love about the photographs is their humanising effect and candid portrayal of some of the world’s most (im)famous figures, the likes of Robert Gabriel Mugabe, Muammar Gaddafi, Hugo Chavez and others.

He has put all these amazing photographs of world leaders in a book aptly called: “Power”.
