We’ve mentioned, many times, our fascination with the parts of the artwork that don’t make the cut. Why was a particular scene deleted, a particular image dropped? And how different would a work have been – how different would its reception have been – if it were edited differently?
Obviously in print the editing process is a strict one, given physical space limitations. And we, the reader, often have no idea how the images were selected or what was left out. From this recent Magdalena Frackowiak shoot for Vogue Paris comes a handful of additional shots, published on Lachlan Bailey’s blog with a very different feel to the finished editorial. The final shots are polished, sun-drenched, and vibrant while these outtakes favour the black and white vintage feel, raw emotion, and the rolling dark clouds.
Whether these were opted out of the pages of Vogue Paris by Bailey or by the editorial powers that be we can only guess – but as for the outtakes being themselves published non the less – that’s to be thankful for. Beautifully shot, you can see a few more at the gallery above.
