Ana Dias

Bird of Paradise


There’s a good chance you’ve heard of Julia Yaroshenko. This well-known nude model with fiery red hair, freckled golden skin and alluring green eyes has won admirers the world over. The petite Ukrainian-born beauty packs a definite punch, proving that good things sometimes come in small packages.
On location on the tropical island paradise of Bali, Indonesia, Julia’s free spirit takes in all her natural surroundings in this set from photographer Ana Dias for Playboy Netherlands. “Shooting nude is a very intimate process, you need to trust and surrender to the photographer. And when I see sincere admiration in the eyes of a photographer, I am ready to open up and give more. That’s exactly what I felt with Ana. I felt her experience and deep appreciation for the female figure. She and I were delighted and rejoiced to be creating beautiful art together and we couldn’t stop shooting. We shot for many hours non-stop. It was an amazingly harmonious dance between the model and the photographer,” she shared. The beautiful redhead feels that her work is very meaningful and that beauty is at the heart of it. “I like to think that by modeling nude I’m serving the world, I’m inspiring men and women with beauty,” she shares. We could not agree more.
When she’s not in front of the camera, Julia loves to meditate, travel or check items off her bucket list. “I would love to experience the tea ceremony in Japan,” she says. But that’s only one of Julia’s many goals to nourish her mind and soul. “I am also planning to skydive over Hawaii, make a pilgrimage in Nepal, live for a while practicing yoga in the Indian city of Rishikesh, take a Vipassana course at the New Zealand Goenka Center and live in a temple soaking up the wisdom of mystic gurus.”
It’s time to indulge in a transcendental fantasy with Playboy Playmate and cover girl Julia Yaroshenko, right here.
