Vasilina by Julia/Yuliya Timofeeva (via Photosight.ru)

These images demonstrate the essence of Julia Timofeeva’s galleries on Photosight:  beautiful and intimate, with an openness as regards her children as well as herself – and an interesting question as to who is holding the camera when she herself is so often one of the subjects.

Julia is a nude model herself: whether for other photographers I don’t know, but her own galleries (on Photosight, at least) are liberally sprinkled with her erotic and semi-erotic studies (meaning a well-placed hand prevents possible crotch-shots, but there are enough nipples to bring Facebook out in a nappy-rash…)

A lot of her images are like this: semi-staged slices of family life in monchrome, but you can see that over the years she’s tried colour, and even tried her hand at “promotional” shots with her kids. I’ll start with my favourites – and let me say, her standards are high, so it’s far from being an easy choice – yours may be very different:

Then there are the more traditional colour portraits:

….she has an Instagram account, under the name of @vozmozno, with a startlingly different feel: all colour, lots of commercial-style photography – skiing, partying. Very weird. (She also says she has just three children – Vasilina, the girl in most of these shots, who’ll be fifteen in December, and two boys.) Here’s an example, just to give you an idea:

Вот уже который год, мое новогоднее настроение начинается с ноября! Почти полтора месяца, почти каждый день, я прихожу в самые красивые студии, что бы делать сказочные, волшебные, новогодние фотографии🙏🏻✨это бесконечно круто, когда твоя работа напрямую связана с праздником😇🙏🏻 на фото красавицы из танцевального коллектива Натальи Курчевских #новыйгод#праздниккнамприходит#люблюсвоюработу#такаяработа#детинашевсе#нг2016#скорозима#спокойнойночи#спб#питер#санктпетербург#фотограф#фото#семейныйфотограф#лучшее#smile#white#goodnight#good#gerl#kids#plaza#леонастейдж

….while on VK.com her galleries are full of…… Weddings! Pregnancies! New borns! Families! Divorces! (Ok, I made one of them up….) Here’s a shot from a family session:

Sticking to my more studio-artistic theme, a gallery of the ones from her parallel-universe on Photosight that didn’t make the (admittedly overlong) main list – however I’d urge anyone interested in her to click on them: there could well be one that makes you think I’m an idiot for leaving it out:

I’ll stop speculating as to why she has such diverse platform content, and encourage you to visit her gallery, even check out her “adult” portfolio (nothing to scare the horses, and in fact some are really beautiful) – for example one that is “just” a portrait, but worth the price of admission on its own:

….and three non-erotic nude studies:

…and if they were taken after having three kids she has my undying admiration….
