I really love the subject matter, as a nursing mother myself I love to see this issue brought out to the forefront. I do wish that the pose seemed more natural. It seems to posed, too staged, and for such a natural process it seems a bit stiff. When I am nursing my son I definitely don't look that great, and I would always have a diaper on him, definitely don't want to get peed on. It's time everyone has excepted it as it is a totally normal and natural process between a mother and her child. I think it would be more impactful if it seemed more realistic. With that being said I still love this photo and what it represents. Great work!

I like the image and the subject matter - too many taboos around breast feeding - but I fear the pose looks too 'artificial'. The technical side is good - even lighting crisp focus and uncluttered background. Perhaps the white sheet could have been less wrinkeled and the small section against teh background could have been photoshopped out as it is a distraction. The black dress was well chosen - it sets Alexandr's skin colour off well and indeed is an excellent counter-point to Ksenia's pale skin. I trust the nappy-less Alexandr didn't spoil it!
Reading what i have just written it might seem that I don't like the image which is far from the truth - I really like it.

I know this should be simply widely accepted in society and not be labeled art, but the photo is really good and really well done!
