Yury Bird was born in 1972, in Skadovsk, Ukraine. All the childhood was spent near the sea, which somehow resulted in prevalence of lovely photographical themes such as seascape and sky. Education was given in Dnepropetrovsk, where Yury lives and work and now. Long time exposure photography, sharp light transitions, meditative minimalism, theme of loneliness – are all together his main direction in photography. He doesn’t have any idols in photography, but with a great pleasure would review masterpieces done by Ansel Adams, Michael Kenna and David Fokos. In some relations, He is calling all them as his teachers. Prefer work in black and white, but also joyfully work with colors though. Photography is the life style, self expression, meditation, in the same time it’s sorrow and gladness.
