Beyoncé appoints ‘Vogue’s first Ever Black Photographer
Following a successful tour and MTV nomination, Beyoncé‘s next move is covering September issue of Vogue. Though she has graced several magazine covers in the past, this upcoming issue will be significantly different.
Reports indicate that Vogue is “contractually obligated to give Beyoncé full control over this cover,” plus content within September issue. Beyoncé is using her platform to make history by hiring Tyler Mitchell a New York-based photographer, who will become the first black photographer to shoot an American Vogue cover since its founding over 125 years ago. Stay tuned for more news and the cover’s premiere next month.
