Photographer's historic portraits with a modern twist

Senegalese photographer Omar Victor Diop has told Focus on Africa why he reinvented some historic paintings with a playful touch of his very own.

He said it was part of his exploration of the history of Africa, and the continent's relationship with the rest of the world.
