Barcelona - Berlin - Kiev: Yuriy Ogarkov

Yuriy Ogarkov is a German photographer, born in Ukraine and based in Barcelona.

Long before Yuriy became an advertising, sport and fashion photographer, he discovered a passion for travelling and learning about different cultures. His most acclaimed work is about the shamans of Siberia. In that self-produced project Yuriy was travelling through Siberia living and photographing the lifestyle of shaman communities.

The series won many international awards, exhibited in Los Angeles and was published in prominent publications. When Yuriy is not busy doing commercial photography, he uses the time to travel and discover unique corners of our planet. His communication skills, curiosity and respect to other cultures enable him access and trust of people that he photographs. It gives Yuriy the ability to capture people in their everyday life in a natural and authentic way.
