Artists Recreate Iconic Posters of Movie Classics with Black Models

Matrix and American Beauty given new look by talented photographers Antoine Tempé and Omar Victor Diop.

The idea behind the Onomolliwood series is to pay tribute to iconic moments of cinema which have highly influenced the two talented photographers.

The two Dakar-based photographers recreated the Matrix scene where Keanu Reeves defies physics to contort his body to swerve a bullet.

Thelma and Louise is given a fresh look in this shot, as the two models stare into the distance, just like the original stars did.

The hairstyle, outfit and coy smile mimic Breakfast at Tiffany’s – made famous by Audrey Hepburn.

The 1966 thriller Blow Up is given a fresh look here, as Tempe and Diop wanted to conceive of a Hollywood if it had been Africa-based.

Salma Hayek and Mia Maestro starred in the biopic of the famous artist, who became known for her self-portraits, and the new photograph paid homage to the film.
