In a circle I can redefine spatial relationships between different parts of the photograph in very different ways than I can in a rectangle, square, triangle, diamond or any other geometric shape. In the mid 1970s I did some work with 1:7 ratio panoramic rectangles as well as diamond shaped photographs. These projects went poorly and were terminated after a short period of time. While a circle gives me different options from some of the several traditional rectangles used in photography as well as from the square, the options are not so extreme as to confuse me in the way diamonds and extreme panoramic rectangles did in the past.
