Afro Futures

“ Afro Futures “ published in 2019 is a photographic essay combining science fiction fantasies and tradition, appropriating clichés to highlight every model’s individuality and celebrating the womxn noire & proud. Each portrait is hiding a glimpse of the photographer’s duality and  the desire to blend into the European landscape without giving up her Ivorian identity. Médine Tidou is escaping the globality and the universality of the “typical” vision of tomorrow to fully integrate her peers. She gives them a unique representation that mixes a modern techno mythology with nowadays “cultural” codes. With these series, she transforms the everyday black queen into a Afrofuturistic goddess.
