Yury Avi's exhibition "The Way Home" was shot in Russia, Ukraine, India, Spain, Australia
and New Zealand. It's a metaphoric journey, in search of oneself and one's spiritual way in

Yura Avi is a Russian photographic artist, director and musician currently based in
Melbourne, Australia. His interest in photography started at the age of 17, when a simple
camera first appeared in his life as a birthday present from his parents . At this point, a new
incredible world of photo art opened to him, full of fun, experiments and self expression.
His first project called "surREALITY" which happened in 2007 was a series of abstract
photographs, balancing between real and unreal. Later, Yury began extensive travelling
and his style transformed from experimental to reportage and fine art. In 2009 he was
announced the finalist of the First National Award "Best Photographer 2009" with his
other project "Man and City". Yury's work was exhibited at numerous personal and group
exhibitions, including international festivals and fairs. Currently, Yury is based in Melbourne
and actively continues his artwork, mainly concentrated on photography and music.
