In 2015, he self-published his first photo book, El Paquete, which documented architecture and skateboarding scenes in Havana, Cuba. In 2018, he made history as the first black photographer to shoot the cover of American Vogue, photographing Beyoncé for the magazine’s September issue. Across photography and film, Mitchell has also worked with Solange, Teen Vogue, Dazed, i-D magazine, Office magazine, The Fader magazine, Marc Jacobs, Mercedes Benz, Givenchy, and Converse.
