Word around the fashion world is Beyoncé will be on the cover of Vogue’s September issue! The singer was on the cover previously in 2015, but this time is much different because she will have full control over the cover. Beyoncé has even selected the photographer for her shoot, Tyler Mitchell, a young photographer from Atlanta who is not unfamiliar with a camera, is the first black photographer to shoot a cover in the publication’s 126-year history!
While Vogue and Anna Wintour would have selected a different type of photographer for their cover shoot, Beyoncé has used her influence to make sure he got this position.
"The reason a 23-year-old black photographer is photographing Beyoncé for the cover of Vogue is because Beyoncé used her power and influence to get him that assignment." A source said.
We are very excited to see what comes of this project, and to see the visionary direction of Beyoncé's control, and Mitchell's honest and artistic eyes. While we do not know the theme of this shoot or whether Beyoncé will provide an interview, we know that whatever is created will be the best of the best! Below are a few pictures from Tyler Mitchell's instagram (@Tylersphotos) to get an idea of his portfolio.
