Yuri Syuganov was born in Russia where he earned his first photography award at the age of 7. He attended the Moscow Institute of Electronic Engineering. During his university years in the mid‐1980s he started practicing street photography in and around Moscow. Back then Yuri was using a LOMO lc-a camera and exhibiting images taken with this camera long before the word “lomography” was invented.

Yuri came to the U.S. in 2000 and until the end of 2017 lived in the San Francisco Bay Area where he has exhibited few personal shows at coffee shops in San Francisco, Cupertino and Mountain View, and had a lomo‐wall installation in San Jose. He participated in the International Photography Festival in Arles, France, and in a few juried group shows in San Francisco, New York and Milan. His work was also featured in The Bold Italic online magazine. He currently resides in Washington, D.C.
