Zhivoderova it's an alias of russian photographer Julia Zaharova. 

Julia Zaharova was born in 1982 in Moscow, Russia.

She began working as a professional photographer in 2006.

Prior to starting her photographic career, Julia studied philosophy and law. After graduating, she worked as a lawyer, but continued to engage in her lifelong hobby - taking photos. However her experiences as a participant in photography courses gave her the encouragement she needed to leave the legal profession and follow her passion. She subsequently worked as a photo editor for Russian magazines and publications. While Julia began her commercial career as an advertising and portrait photographer, in more recent times she has begun working in the fine art sphere.

Julia’s first project was classical portraits depicting tattooed people and representatives of various subcultures. She is constantly inspired by unusual, abnormal and unexpected things that defy expectations. She is currently working as an in-house photographer in the British Higher School of Art and Design, Moscow, Russia.
