Why is there no Vogue Africa?
Serious questions could abound from Conde Nast seemingly overlooking Africa as a fashion market. With beauties such as Iman and Liya Kebede originating from the continent that is generally considered humanity’s birthplace, it’s a considerable thought to leave it unattended in the fashion arena.
Thankfully, Mario Epanya, a Cameroon native who moved to Paris in 2000, has begun concept art photography for his version of Vogue Africa. A consistent presence in the world of beauty photography, having picked up the camera for the first time in 2008, Epanya has proved himself a very capable and talented man.
While Conde Nast still retains rights to the concept of Vogue Africa, time will tell the simple reason they have chosen to forgo this exciting opportunity.
