everyone has an abyss to stare into

the latest issue of zoo magazine features alexander mcqueen's collection for men. these disturbing images of a rabbit-headed model makes one think of perverted idea of a hidden face, someone one can't see nor recognize. it's all about reflections of the image, a plot and an idea one can create. if i can't see you i'll create you. expoliting the cliche of grown-up toys (therefore, more scaring rather than simply intriguing) this editorial plays with viewer's imagination. and it's a cruel game. as courtney love's character in the beat movie quotes friedrich nietzsche, 'if you stare into the abyss long enough, the abyss stares back at you'.
