The image is one of several photos created by Mitchell with Beyoncé for Vogue‘s September issue last year, when he became the first African-American to shoot a cover for the magazine.

Mitchell wrote on his Twitter handle:

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