Photo by Tyler Mitchell '13 Heading to Smithsonian

A photograph of Beyoncé, taken by Tyler Mitchell '13, has been acquired by the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

Tyler made history last year when he became the first African-American photographer to shoot a cover for Vogue in the publication's 125-year history. Beyoncé personally selected Tyler—whom she called "brilliant"—to photograph her for the magazine's September issue.

“A year ago today we broke the flood gates open,” Tyler tweeted. “Now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection.”
