 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'

 'American Beauty'


 'Thelma and Louise'


Sometimes the Internet is a wonderful place. I came across an old article on a website with the top photo, and was stunned to see a black Holly Golightly, originally played by Audrey Hepburn in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. It was so shocking to see the mix of a classic movie with beautiful black skin, in a really positive way. Reading the article, I discovered the photograph had come from a project by two photographers based in Dakar, Senegal, Antoine Tempe' and Omar Victor Diop, who were approached by the ONOMO hotel group to take some images. They decided to 're-mix' classic movies and infuse them with a cast, style and feel that was representative of Dakar.

Above are some of my favourite images. You can see some more and find out a bit more about the photographers and the project here.

Do you have a favourite movie you'd love to 're-mixed'? I'd quite like to be Vivian from Pretty Woman!
