Nadine Ijewere, Nigerian-Jamaican photographer, has become the first black female photographer to shoot a cover for Vogue Magazine.
The London-based portrait and fashion photographer took a shot of global pop star Dua Lipa for the 2019 Edition of British Vogue.
Ijewere, who studied photography at the London College of Fashion, has made the announcement on her Instagram page @nadineijewere.
She said: 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.”
