Moroccan photographer Mehdi Sefrioui debuts his photographic fashion editorial on Another Africa celebrating the black body, black men and mens’ fashion. A homage to his another Africa, where equality, beauty and agency co-exist. The photographer spawned ‘Infro’, a series of photographs pointing to the pink elephant in the fashion room.
Under Sefrioui’s guidance an irenic squad of black male models converge on the outskirts of Paris. Mehdi Sefrioui uses infrared treatment to play up the issue of runway diversity through rose colored glasses. Brooding eyes against pink woods a heady dream of black skin in fashion, of blacks on the runway. Which, along with his use of composition lure the observer into a longer gaze.
