When Yuri Denisyuk began his investigations on what he dubbed “wave photography” some 48 years ago, connectionswith Dennis Gabor’s “wavefront reconstruction” were not evident, and the field of holography did not exist. The originality of his early research impeded Denisyuk’s early recognition, but from the mid 1960s he was almost continuously involved in the subject and made further major contributions to modern holography.
