Beyoncé will reportedly grace Vogue’s September issue and in true Queen Bee fashion she’s making history by enlisting young black photographer Tyler Mitchell to shoot her for the cover. This is the first time in the fashion magazine’s 126-year history that a Black photographer has shot the cover. 

“I depict black people and people of color in a really real and pure way,” said 23-year-old Mitchell in an interview withThe New York Times in December. “There is an honest gaze to my photos.”

Mitchell has also shot high end campaigns before with Marc Jacobs and Givenchy. Visit www.thegrio.com to read the full article.
