The Pedestrian

Inspired by Hans Eijkelboom’s 1978 work 'The Ideal Man', in which the artist interviewed a series of women about their fantasy partner before transforming himself into their likeness, we encounter eight different men as they dress in Bianca Saunders’s designs and explore notions of the ‘perfect man’.
