Yuri Kozyrev has deliberately based his work on the tradition of Russian humanitarian photography from countries, the citizens of which suffer from the impacts of injustice, war conflicts, widespread diseases and natural disasters. Yuri Kozyrev, co-founder of the NOOR agency, a successful photographer considered by the expert public to be one of the best authors in journalist photography, and multiple World Press Photo winner, offers to us a unique overview of his works made throughout his professional career, which will definitely get under the skin of the audience and will remain in our memory in the future. These images might seem harsh, yet, in their artistic essence, they are beautiful and unique. We thus have the opportunity the see the best of what photojournalism of the 21st century can provide.
