Beyonce covers Vogue Magazine

'I think it's important for women and men to see and appreciate te beauty i their natural bodies. That's why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little make up for this shoot.'

'When I first started, 21 years ago, I was told that it was hard for me to get onto covers of magazines because black people did not sell. Clearly that has been proven a myth. Not only is an African American on the cover of the most important month for Vogue, this is the first ever Vogue cover shot by an African American photographer.'

'It’s important to me that I help open doors for younger artists. There are so many cultural and societal barriers to entry that I like to do what I can to level the playing field, to present a different point of view for people who may feel like their voices don’t matter…I pray that I’m doing all I can to open doors for the next generation of talents' -  Beyonce.

Photographer, Tyler Mitchell from Atlanta, Georgia, at just 23 he is one of the youngest photographers for a Vogue Cover, Mr. Mitchell is the first African-American creative to photograph a Vogue cover in it’s 125 year history. #Formation
