Vogue’s ‘first black female cover photographer’

Nigerian-Jamaican photographer, Nadine Ijewere, has become the first black woman to shoot a Vogue cover, according to pop culture site Konbin and Nigeria’s Vanguard newspaper.

The London-based fashion photographer posted the January cover of Vogue on her Instagram account, with her photo of English singer-songwriter Dua Lipa.

Accompanying the post, Ijewere wrote:

“If you had told me last year I would have photographed for British Vogue, I would have said not possible.

“If you had told me a cover, I would have thought perhaps in a parallel universe.

“I am so grateful for this opportunity I have been given to shoot for a publication where I once felt perhaps I did not measure up.”

In September, Tyler Mitchell made history as the first black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover, marking a defining moment for diversity in the fashion industry.

It followed the appointment of Edward Enninful as the first black, male, editor of British Vogue.
