Indulging in the outtakes

I’m always saddening that some of the art I’m likely to appreciate never sees the light of day. It’s for that reason that I tend to hunt down the “director’s cuts” and deleted scenes that have ended up missing from the cinematic experiences I most enjoyed. And it’s for the same reason that the biggest impression left on me by The September Issue was that so much of Grace Coddington’s dreamy Paris je t’aime photo shoot was left on the cutting room floor. So it is that I encourage all the talented photographers who contribute to Fashionising.com to send through a broader selection of their photo shoots then they might otherwise submit to a print title. Print is confined; web publications such as ours, less so.

Today the concept comes full circle as we publish Timmothy Lee‘s L’amour Immateriel. You see, the photo shoot that follows, with its sensualised play on shadow and skin, is not actually the photo shoot as published: it’s all the outtakes. All the photos that hit the cutting room floor. All the things you should have missed out on.

But wasted art, particulary the kind that elicits feeling, can be like wasted talent: a crying shame.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
