Tyler Mitchell Just Shot The Cover For Vogue! Article Image
Film alum Tyler Mitchell shot the cover for the September issue of Vogue Magazine! This issue, featuring Beyonce, marks the first time that an African American photographer has shot a Vogue cover. "It was at once totally unreal and also felt like I had been living my whole life to receive that call," he said in an interview on NPR's All Things Considered. "So I think there's a level of amazing kind of magic to it." Before receiving the cover assignment, Tyler had previously worked with Teen Vogue, i-D Magazine, Dazed, and Candy Magazine. A graduate of NYU's film and television program, he's now a photographer and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY.
