In the series of works «Single Whole» I am investigating the issue of gender and self identification, while in many countries there are repressive laws forbidding public displays of this topic. When depicting a person’s body, I mainly reveal the spiritual state. To convey the spiritual state, I use the language of Fine Art photography from the beginning of the 20th century.
