Civilian I Wanna Be II

Viktor Naumovski
Lyson Marchessault
Marie Lüder

The second part of the fictional story created by photographer Viktor Naumovski in response to Marie Lüder’s graduation collection. Lüder FW 18/19 is the result of the designer’s immersive research into the hidden aspects of modern masculinity, contrasting with its contemporary portrayal in the media.

The post-modern heterosexual male becomes the protagonist of Naumovski’s story, stumbling around a Victorian mansion like an alien out of time, an artefact coming to terms with its newly acquired impotence and irrelvancy.  A paper cutout of hyper-masculinity, the cowboy seeks its lost place in a now foreign mansion, to be finally allowed the hope of physical and psychological rebirth.
