Editor’s Miscellany: New England Home Unseen

March 30, 2012

By Kyle Hoepner

Not long ago, photographer Michael J. Lee posted on his Facebook page a series of pictures he had taken that, for one reason or another, had never been seen by the public. Michael’s idea got me thinking about the similar occasional fate of photos here at New England Home. There are unfortunately times when we have beautiful images from our talented roster of photographers that don’t make it into print–not because they’re in any way undeserving, but because other factors such as space constraints or editorial focus require the sacrifice.

So I’ve decided to share, from time to time, a few of those previously hidden gems. Here’s a first batch for your enjoyment; when possible I’ve also linked to the story that was published.
