Through his photographic work on AITF Magazine covers in which the “United Republics of Africa” are hegemonic, Nicolas Premier studies the mechanisms implemented by a superpower in its self representation, as seen in the symptomatic LIFE Magazine.
Because covers use images and texts and operate shortcuts that solicit the imagination to fill what’s not represented, they offer the perfect and fertile playground to divert the codes of the photojournalism and its supposed objectivity in global representations.
