Red October is a former industrial area in central Moscow that’s included a chocolate factory Red October, hence the name. Today it’s one of the most flamboyant altough inconveniently located cultural quarters, full of art galleries, bars, fashion stores, a design school, night clubs and edtiorial offices of magazines. The photo (depicting a rather typical business redevelopment on the other shore of the Moskva River) was taken from a terrace that’s part of the editorial office of Bolshoi Gorod magazine for which I have the privilege to photograph from time to time.
Address
Red October, 6 Bersenevskaya Naberzhnaya, Moscow, Russia
Current city: Moscow
I was born in St Petersburg, then, at 11, moved to Siberia where I have lived for 12 more years, graduated from a local university before returning to my hometown in 1998. I took various jobs there before finally turning to photography. From last August I am based in Moscow, a mad metropolis full of contrasts, energy and drama at every corner. In terms of urban design and architecture, many consider it a failed city, and you really have to know it from the inside to be able to appreciate its vibrance and dynamics. In this nostalgic picture (by Savva Bogatyrev), I am on a tram back in St Pete with my wife Veronika.

Strogino is a remote residential neibourhood on the northwest end of Moscow, famous for its greenery, water space and barbecue.
