Beyoncé Given Full Control Over Her September ‘Vogue’ Shoot, Hired the First Black Cover Photographer in the Mag’s 126 Year History

Beyoncé is changing the live of a young Black photographer.

According to the Huffington Post, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gave Beyoncé unprecedented control over the cover + editorial for her upcoming September issue.

via HuffPo:

As part of her power, Bey reportedly hired the first black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover in the publication’s 126-year history.

His name is Tyler Mitchell and he’s just 23 years old.

The publication is contractually obligated to give Beyoncé full control over the cover, the photos of her inside the magazine and the captions, which she has written herself and are in long-form, according to two sources who are familiar with the agreement between Vogue and Beyoncé but aren’t authorized to speak to the press.

Beyoncé chose Tyler Mitchell, 23, to be her photographer.

“I depict black people and people of color in a really real and pure way,” Mitchell, who has already made a splash by shooting campaigns for Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, told The New York Times in December. “There is an honest gaze to my photos.”

Wintour has always exerted complete control over the fashion bible, including selecting the outfits worn by cover models. Cover subjects are usually given little to no say in their photos and are sent the cover in the week ahead of publication, a source familiar with the editorial process at the publication told HuffPost.

The cover is also likely to be Wintour’s last September issue, according to four sources familiar with her plans. Vogue parent company Condé Nast repeatedly has said the editor is not leaving the magazine.

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

BrooklynPetite: I believe I was a sophomore in High School, that was when I let go of the sneaker trend and bought my first pair of cowboy boots, that I couldn’t stop wearing. After those boots came more ankle boots, knee high boots. It was like I never knew other style of shoes existed outside of the nike and Jordan trend.
