|Yuri's BASE Galleries
On his site, BASE Jumper Yuri Kuznetszov takes you on a visual trip to some of the finest and most exciting BASE places on earth. Here you'll find tons of photos from his trips and jumps, and this site gets updated quite often. Many of these pictures are not the nifty professional looking ones like those you can find on the "camera gods" websites. But that doesn't matter at all because on these snap shots, you can see and feel the excitement and the fun of the moment. BASE jump experiences seem to be these guys life's, not photographic experiences and perfection, and that's what makes Yuri's galleries so charming and fun to look at.

|Those photos were taken from various photographers who accompanied Yuri on his BASE trips. Yuri has a hard to time to recall who of his friends took which photos. Well...he was busy jumping from the rocks, bridges and buildings anyway. So if you want to know what BASE jumping is all about check out Yuri's web site and get a blast. We surely did!|
As Yuri states on his site: "The pictures were taken somewhere in time and space by Dima Obod, Steve Ball, Bill Legg, Don Griffith, Mark Hewitt, Stein Edwardsen, Simone Pollera, a few others cool guys and cute babes and myself".
