The Queen Bey herself will be making history once again this September, and a young man by the name of Tyler Mitchell will be helping her do it. Vogue Magazine’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour will be giving Beyonće complete control over the September issue of Vogue. This includes who can shoot the cover.
Mitchell who is a 23-year-old African American photographer has been selected for this project. This will be the first time in 126 years that Vogue will have a black photographer. Mitchell received his Bachelor of Fine Art in film and television from New York University’s Tisch School of Arts. Back in 2015 is when he first started gaining attention for his work. He has already shot for Solange Knowles, Spike Lee, Teen Vogue, Marc Jacobs, American Eagle, and Givenchy.
Tyler is definitely making his mark in this industry, and we can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us.
