Yuri Rasin is a talented street photographer and blogger who lives in the south of France. He was born and raised in Almaty (former capital of Kazakhstan), spent half of his teenage years in Israel and later lived in England.
I found his work through his well-written and informative blog and was impressed from the beginning with his work and his willingness to share and exchange ideas and information about photography in general, his various projects, and thoughts from shooting on the street.
To me, Yuri’s work has strong emotion, even a poetic sense. There’s a bit of urban angst and ache, but not too much. A sense of loneliness is hard to capture in a frame, but it’s important. As Henry Rollins wrote, “Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better.”
Yuri’s shadows and lines are beautiful. Every shot tells a story, which is at the heart of street photography.
Thanks for the chance to show your work, Yuri!
