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

life. It is a search of truth which is in each one of us, and which can be found only if looked

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.
