When Antoine Tempé and Omar Victor Diop put their minds together, they created a stunning collection of work that changed the perception of traditional movie posters.

This collection was created for an exhibit entitled ‘Onomollywood,’ and the photographers wanted to change iconic movie posters. Instead of leaving the popular actor as the subject for the poster, they changed it to be Senegalese models. The models completely changed the theme of the posters, and having these models made the movie posters more diverse. Also, by using strictly Senegalese models, Tempe and Diop were able to raise awareness, and also highlight Senegalese culture. Antoine Tempé and Omar Victor Diop created an incredible series that definitely re-imagines the classic movie posters that many are used to.
