Yuri Mechitov

My name is Yuri Mechitov. I was born on May, 10, 1950 in Tbilisi, Georgia.

I began to shoot photographs when I was 8 years old. But I started to think about photography seriously much later.

My first exhibition was displayed in 1979 in Tbilisi. I started to work mainly in documentary genre, now I find I like to shoot people, I was happy to get into the art-world. It happened occasionally, but I believe that it was as it should be.

My guides were two very different persons - an artist Mark Polyakov, who lives and works in NY now, and a film-director Sergey Parajanov, who rests in peace, in Yerevan, Armenia. They made all their best for me, for I could understand, evaluate and then to create art myself.
