The Hanging

15 mins


You’ve probably seen the photos: click-bait on social media portraying a Russian kid in selfies, perched perilously, crazily, on top of building towers and cranes or hanging one-handed from ledges. Meet 19-year-old Kirill. The architecture-obsessed Moscow resident eschewed the typical path of college and armed forces for a life of urban exploration. His objectives: the rooftops of Moscow, where he pushes the boundaries of risk and exposure while exploring the wilder side of his city. Atop the buildings, cranes and the city’s highest points, he gains a perspective few of his fellow city dwellers will ever encounter.
