Looking To Be Safe & Sound
This is a reworked unpublished photo essay created in a time of crisis in late 2008 by Lukas Kroulik - brought back in the face of the 2020 pandemic. It drew on PROTECT AND SURVIVE: a booklet prepared for the Home Office by the Central Office of Information in 1980, aimed at the general public describing "how to make your home and your family as safe as possible under nuclear attack."
Lukas has always been looking for places and spaces where he had felt safe and sound. He styled, made-up and photographed his fashion model to fit his own safe and familiar space, as recommended by the emergency booklet.
