When Yuri Denisyuk began his investigations into 'wave photography' in 1958, connections with Dennis Gabor's 'wavefront reconstruction' were not evident, and the field of holography did not exist. The originality of his research impeded Denisyuk's early recognition, but he later was recognised as a key contributor to the field of holography. This account summarizes his early career and rising recognition in the Western world.
