Juraj Gavura was born in 1976 in Martine. He has been photographing for 28 years. In his work, he focuses on landscaping from total views and panoramas, from landscape details to macrophotography. Most of his photographs are located in the countryside of Turčianska kotlina and in the mountains of Veľká and Malá Fatra.
In his work, the author searches for themes with a simple composition. It is a landscape that gives a kind of harmony, whether light, color or composition. He likes to visit the same places in different seasons, during different parts of the day, to capture them in the rush of weather that create the mysterious atmosphere of the mystical landscape.
Landscape photography from author's work can be found in residential interiors, in many companies, in publications, textbooks, promotional materials and calendars about Slovakia. Part of the author's work is also photographing architecture, interior designers, and product photography.
Since 1996, he has been a member of the Karol Plicok Fotoklub in Martin.
Since 1998 he has been a member of the Union of Slovak Photographers.
Since 2016 he is a member of the Slovak Federation of Photographers, a member of the FIAP.
