In the Yulia Gorodinski Melancholy series, the Belarus-born artist proves she is the perfect photographer and model package in one. Her incredible collections of self-portraits are expertly composed and evoke a diverse array of emotions. The images from Melancholy are serene, daring, innocent and erotic. Her choice to exclude her face from most photos adds to the ability to appreciate each image in its entirety, without focusing on the subject alone.

The Yulia Gorodinsku Melancholy Collection has fused sensual portrait and landscape photography into a well-crafted self-shot series.
