The project by the Ukrainian artist Anton Karyuk is shaped as a reflection on cliches and manipulations of public opinion. Reversals of the Soviet Lithuanian magazine “Kinas” of 1954-1956 are taken as the basis of it. The pictures show same-sex relationships (friendship, work, etc.) from some cult films of that time. Now it is possible to look at them from a different angle through abstract images referencing to sexual fetishes.

In the past era of censorship and state control over culture, photography carried a political and biased implications, helping to govern people. It’s enough to look at a different light and the meaning changes.How easy is it to influence people? And how does public opinion and popular cliches distort our perception of the world?
