ModelViewSet and Files

When using a ModelViewSet class to receive a json, with several fields, including the “photo-profile” field, that same key arrives empty “{}”, as you can see in the photo below. Also I can’t find the file in “request.FILES”, this being empty.
Can you tell me if I will have to use another type of Django Rest Framework class or do we get the file in another way?

Side note: While there are people here who have some familiarity with DRF and will try to help you, this is not one of the officially-recognized DRF support channels. See Home - Django REST framework for the recommend support choices for DRF. You may get faster answers through one of those options.

DRF has various parsers, when using media files you need to use a different from the default one (JSONPARSER) and you also need to change you frontend apps, so you must use “normal” forms.
