Hello! My name is Yuri.

After graduating as a senior technician on image and study a specialization course in photojournalism at IDEP (Barcelona), I had the opportunity to assist recognized photographers from national geographic as Tino Soriano and Annie Griffiths Belt.

Burn Magazine, DOC!, Foto a Foto, Bonart, Descobrir Catalunya,Fotografia Magazine, F-Stop Magazine, Piel de Foto, Lens Culture, Positive Magazine and Ojo de Pez, are some of the media in which I have published.
