Yusri Yusof

Yusri Yusof is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. However, for the past six years, he has been traveling quite extensively. At first, photography was just another hobby but over the years he has truly become an avid photographer and found his passion in trying to create meaningful and memorable photos.

Traveling and being away from home has taken his interest in photography to a new level as he tries to bring a camera with him every time he is on the streets. Street, photojournalism, and documentary photography really appeal to him as it takes the combination of anticipation, patience, and persistence to be able to get a photo which tells the story, gives impacts and leaves trailing thoughts to its viewers.

Speaking of street photography, he does not believe that luck plays a part in capturing a good photo. The photograph and the scene he captures are like a hand completing a jigsaw puzzle. There is no luck, it is either you capture or miss the scene, using a pair of good eyes and instinct.
