Music Collaborations

Art Partner


From music videos and album covers to high-profile editorial and brand campaigns, Art Partner photographers and directors have long collaborated with some of the greatest musical talents of our times from Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards to world-famous singer and songwriter Taylor Swift.

MERT & MARCUS

The London-based duo are a dual force—fashion image-makers whose fame approaches the aura of the monikered musicians they so often photograph, be that Madonna, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry or any other superstar who has posed before their lens.

Nicki Minaj 'Regret In Your Tears'

Creative directed and shot by Mert & Marcus, Nicki Minaj’s music video ‘Regret In Your Tears’ exemplifies the elaborate set designs and color palettes for which the photography duo are so well known.

MADONNA X MERT & MARCUS

The pair’s relationship with music icon, Madonna, is particularly significant, spanning two decades of projects across commercial campaigns, cover stories, music videos, and fragrance launches.

MERT & MARCUS X TAYLOR SWIFT

Across 2017 and 2018, Mert & Marcus photographed Talyor Swift for American and British Vogue cover stories, anticipating and aligning with her Reputation album release and worldwide concert tour—of which the cover art was also photographed by the photography duo.

HARLEY WEIR

One of Weir’s most notable music projects was shooting platinum album singer, Rihanna, for the artist’s first cover of Dazed & Confused in 2017.

In addition to this, Harley has lensed Bobby Gillepsie and Skepta for the cover of Another Man.

THESE NEW PURTIAN’S music Video “NAMED INSide the rose”

For These New Puritans’ first album in 6 years and their fourth studio record, Harley Weir shot the music video for the title track “Named Inside the Rose,” featuring her signature sensuous style and photographic rawness.

TYLER MITCHELL

Across a variety of special projects, music videos, and editorials, Mitchell has worked with top-tier musicians such as Beyonce, Solange, and Zendaya as well as rising talents including Kelsey Lu and Kevin Abstract.

Recently, Mitchell shot singer and actress, Zendaya, for his second cover of American Vogue, as well as captured musician Steve Lacy for the Summer 2019 cover of i-D Magazine.

His prestigious September 2018 cover shoot of Beyonce for American Vogue placed him alongside some of the industry’s greatest photographers at the age of 23.

BEYONCÉ ON TYLER MITCHELL’S PHOTOGRAPHY AS ART-FORM AND ACTIVISM

“Until there is a mosaic of perspectives coming from different ethnicities behind the lens, we will continue to have a narrow approach and view of what the world actually looks like. That is why I wanted to work with this brilliant 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell.”

SOLANGE PERFORMANCE ART COLLABORATION WITH THE HAMMER MUSEUM

For Solange’s performance art meets music video “Metatronia,” Mitchell photographed the musician’s Lewittian inspired sculpture and performance before the installation was traveled to key cities across the U.S.

The piece features more than 50 dancers moving in and around Solange’s sculpture set in a verdant landscape, to a minimalist score she co-wrote with John Kirby.

KELSEY LU "BLOOD" ALBUM COVER

Mitchell shoots the singer’s most recent album cover “Blood.”

THEO WENNER

Theo Wenner’s intimate and personal style of photography can be seen across the eighteen covers he has shot for Rolling Stone Magazine over the course of a twelve-year relationship with the publication.

In addition to this, Wenner has directed music videos for The Black Keys, Tame Impala and Mark Ronson. His video for The Black Keys’ single “Fever” was nominated for MTV’s Best Rock Video Award in 2014.
