Playboy model drowns on island photoshoot as ‘Brit photographer questioned’

Galina Fedorova, 32, was found by the Italian coastguard after she had gone to a Sardinian island with photographer Yev Taranovs to work on a project.

A Playboy model was found dead after drowning on an island photoshoot with a British photographer.

Galina Fedorova, 32, was found by the Italian coastguard after she had gone to a Sardinian island with photographer Yev Taranovs to work on a project.

They had hired an inflatable boat for the assignment – which was later found littered with empty alcohol bottles.

As they made their way to the island for the shoot, Taranovs said they stopped to take a dip in the sea.

While in the water, he claims the boat broke from its anchor and beached on a nearby reef at Isola Rossa off the southeast coast of Sardinia.

The pair reportedly tried to swim to the boat, but Taranovs said he lost sight of Russian-born Galina.

An Italian police spokeswoman said the drone footage will be studied to establish whether the couple’s assignment was not in fact a spying mission.

She said: “There is interest in the drone footage as this happened very close to a NATO firing range.

“We have to make sure the assignment was not a cover for a spying mission.

“The current took the boat towards the reef and they tried to swim towards it but were unable to reach it.”
