Photo project. Running on a Moscow construction site

Construction, Sobyanin, alterations of sidewalks, eternal traffic jams on Sadovoye and in the center - this is how Muscovites will remember the capital's summer of 2017. What can we hide, even I have postponed a run near the house a couple of times due to the dismantling of some structure next to VDNKh. But maybe these are just childish excuses? And if you want to run, then even running around the construction site is not an annoying necessity, but a new experience in your piggy bank? Let's try to take this situation and look at it from a different angle together with the Runevation team .

You want to run. You are looking for an opportunity. This is runevation

Katya Zykova, photographer, author of the project recalls: “The idea was so simple on the surface that I still wonder: why didn't anyone take it before us? We didn't invent anything, at all. All the runners this summer, and I am no exception, when wearing sneakers, met with white and green fences and orange jackets around. Wherever you go. Everyday. And one time I just took a closer look at it and said: Hey, this is a great background for shooting, let's add a little bit of surreal here !. This is how everything was born.

Here is a dilapidated, surrounded by trenches town. And there are people in it who continue to lead their normal lives: meeting friends, going to work, running like us. And in this coordinate system, one scolds Sobyanin and does not go to the center once again, while the other tries to look at everything from a different angle and generates: a new road home or a new running route. Or laughs and jumps over the rubble, and then says So it was! This is a photo project !. The main thing is how you perceive reality, what you can do right now. ”

“Moscow is ideal for running. I have not been among the millionaires, except for Moscow and St. Petersburg, but I can say that these cities are ideal for running. They have everything you want: slides, parks, embankments, forests nearby. Now everything is developing so quickly that we will not remember when Moscow was not a running one. ”

“Running (no matter where) is possible only out of fear. IMHO. Infrastructure is, of course, important, eye aesthetics are important, safety is important. And all this can be found in the city, in the park, and in the forest. The main thing is not to get hung up and enjoy. ”

“Moscow is both a city for running and a city not for running. The best places are the ones you like. I like running in the park near my house - go out and run in the park, I like the forest park in the neighboring area (Streshnevo or Losiny Ostrov, for example) - why not get there on a weekend, I like to run out of my favorite coffee shop and race along my route, along the embankments and boulevards - very cool too. You need to run where you like, actively fit into the urban landscape. Fortunately, city runners are a familiar sight now, and no one has the same reaction they did five years ago. ”

“Company is important for every location. I will run alone in the park near the house and will not run along the central streets. In the company of friends, on the contrary, I will choose a run in the center of Moscow - so you can laugh while waiting for the traffic lights and quarrel with cyclists together. ”
