Meet the Dancer Behind Racked's Camera

Because style like Anthony Leslie's should be in focus.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A director of photography is usually found behind the camera, but they aren't usually dressed like Anthony Leslie. Racked's very own DP, a classically trained dancer and New York native, has been shooting beautiful videos for the brand for over a year now, so it was high time to turn the camera around and capture his inimitable wardrobe. His masterful layering skills — textures, colors, prints, fabrics — are borne of both aesthetics and efficiency. But let him tell you more about how he dresses to make sure he can plié for the right shot.
