Photographer Mario Epanya Imagines Several Covers for a fictional Vogue Africa

Paris based makeup artist and photographer Mario Epanya conceived of several breathtaking covers for what apparently would represent a future Vogue Africa. As you may be aware, there is currently no actual edition of African Vogue. Yes, there’s a Vogue Nippon, Vogue India, and even a Vogue Australia–but no Vogue for an entire continent rich in culture, diversity, and, of course, lots of fashion.

I think an African Vogue would be positively refreshing and potentially quite well received. I’ve heard South African fashion week is bubbling over with talent–why not have a Vogue Africa?
What do you think?
