About Yuri
A longing for the other, as well as encounters with the uncanny, inform the photographic language of Yuri Andries. The artist works both close to home or travels miles away to explore unknown territory. His images are characterized by a deliberate use of color and a keen sense of the graphic. They evince a serene aesthetic and a search for stillness. They hover between dream and reality, between reality that is not the truth and fiction that is not a lie. Yuri Andries holds an MA in Graphic Design from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. During his Graphic Design studies, he developed an interest in photography, fascinated by the medium’s tense relation to reality and its function both as a documentary medium and a means to stimulate the imagination. Since 2016, he focuses on his own photographic projects which have been published in National Geographic, GUP Magazine, Ignant and Aint-Bad, among others.
