Yuri was among the first masters who brought in Soviet reportage photography spontaneous scenes of everyday life.

I love intermediate frames, – says the photographer. – The most successful stories of public people can't take after the ceremonial posing, when everyone starts to behave naturally. In General, the photographer should not grab the camera in time with the man. It is necessary to show restraint, to look at the man, to create a relaxed, trusting atmosphere and only then start shooting. After shooting should break up with someone kindly. If the reporter respects himself, he must respect and the man shoots.
