Cutting room collages

Photos get left on the (figurative) cutting room floor all the time. And we’re always fascinated by them: those little fragments of what could have been. But when they’re more than just photos that get left behind, when they’re works of art, then we’re really intrigued. Once again it’s photographer Michael Donovan that’s allowing us a voyeur’s view into the pieces that were born into darkness. This time we’re privy to outtakes from a photo series for Germany’s Husk magazine; a shoot that isn’t just fashion but falls firmly into the art category with pastiches of colour and texture and all-over body paint collaged together to form broken, surreal imagery.

Stunningly put together, this is a series that again proves Donovan’s credentials as a versatile photographer. Styled by Katie Burnett, all the clothing is by Jeremy Scott.

For the voyeur’s view click on the thumbnails above; the first five shots are from Husk, the next six were all outtakes.
