“Round shapes” is an
attempt to redefine the artistic and anatomical (portrait) principles, as
well as the asexual (or sexual) in the act (nude) photography. At the same
time, it is an attempt to define the new “perfect” form, as nonconscious
tendency for self-censorship, due to the
social media policies.
