Late News: Conde Nast Rejects Mario Epanya's Vogue Africa idea

Though this news is late appearing on my blog, I still have read articles and other blog posts about it. I am aware of the rejection that has occured to a specific issue of Vogue Magazine, which is the Africa Issue. Vogue Africa has been given the "thumbs down" by Conde Nast- Publisher of established magazines covering fashion, technology, food, and travel, including The New Yorker, Vogue, and Wired.
Make-Up artist and Photographer Mario Epanya imagined and created covers of what he saw as the future African Edition for Vogue Magazine.

Epanya interntions were to pursue a license for the Africa Edition. when it got rejected he shared on the VOGUE AFRICA by MARIO EPANYA, which is the Facebook group to share and discuss photos and thoughts about his work and the rejection. He also shared with us his thoughts about it as well.

Here are some of the covers that he photographed. To see other ads and photographs click VOGUE AFRICA by MARIO EPANYA. This hard work should no go unnoticed. There is a Vogue Nippon, Vogue India, and even a Vogue Australia, there isn’t a Vogue Africa–and Mario is dedicated to changing that.
