Through the use of photographs, such as the one seen here of Bidot and Bulatkina, Janashvili has launched a Kickstarter campaign for her first artistic photography book. Janashvili's mission is to continue to stand up for the exposure of real body types and make a statement with her portfolio of images showcasing curves that represent "real beauty" and confidence.

“Even though the average American woman is a size 14, our society continues to set sterotypes as standards when it relates to the real body image of women,” the fashion photographer said in a statement.

“This is why I spent years of my time taking pictures of different types of models and took part of numerous 'body image awareness' campaigns that went viral, and caused lots of discussions. Through my book, I would like to continue to spread the mission and break social stereotypes, so we can take a stand on women feeling confident within their own skin."
