Two photographers recreated famous movie scenes in Dakar & Abijan, [in] Africa. (NSFW)  (imgur.com)

Famous movie scene in Africa

“For the Breakfast at Tiffany’s photo, I really like that the model is wearing a white dress and gloves vs. the black dress and gloves Audrey Hepburn wore in the original.” [Source]

All the images can be found here

Here’s an article about the artists. “Fantasy Hollywood: restaging classic films with black models”

“For those interested, these photographs are posted all over walls of the Onomo Airport Hotel near the Dakar airport. The hotel is very frequented by ex-pats transiting out of Western African (mostly working in the mining industry) back to Australia, South Africa, Europe and the Americas. I myself loved looking at these photos at the hotel and would recommend it to anyone who happens to travel there.” [Source]

 

A comment on the Imgur title: “Why label it as Dakar & Abidjan Africa and not Dakar, Senegal and Abidjan, Ivory Coast? Africa is not a country, people.” [Source]
