Chris Saunders is a South African photographer. His pieces explore subcultures and local 'culture crews' in Africa and South Africa, with a focus on reimagining classic African iconology and fashion imagery. The entire African art collection, which was shot for a fashion editorial for GQ Online, is a vision of contemporary African style. This image shows a model with a traditional African weave shaped into a mask, wearing a modern suit. It is juxtaposing the Western image of what African fashion or style is with the true style of modern Africa. Share the art you want to show the world.
