Cutting Room: Jon Foster

The outtakes we couldn’t quite snap into place in print.

Every magazine is an assemblage. In dialing our photo selections, specifically, we always have more pieces than we can possibly use. This speaks more to the talent of the photographers, rather than to any perceived shortcomings in the print medium. (Especially since each issue offers 120 pages of editorial space that we can fill with, more or less, whatever we want.)

During the winnowing sessions for our portfolio highlighting Jon Foster’s Windansea imagery from the 1970s, there were plenty of painful discards. So we shuffled them back into the deck above, along with a few notes by the photographer.
