POPE JOHN PAUL II – Malta 2001

” I feel very lucky to have captured this portrait of Pope John Paul II on his arrival at Malta International Airport during the welcoming speech by the President of Malta Dr. Guido Demarco. It was the 4th of May 2001. Those precious minutes provided a great opportunity for the numerous press photographers coming from all over the globe to capture some historical lifetime pictures. This is indeed one of my favorite photos” – Gino Galea
