Explore Neon-Lit, Cyberpunk Moscow Suburbs With This Bladerunner-Inspired Photographer

The air is grainy with mist and suspense. Passersby with smudged faces move against a backdrop of endless tower blocks and the dull sheen of wet asphalt, lit by the neon glare of signs advertising bargain stores, sex shops, and kebab kiosks. These aren’t stills from a new Ridley Scott or David Lynch film, but an Instagram account documenting the lives of the Moscow suburbs, a project of the photographer Konstantin Vikhrov.

The project focuses on the mundane details of everyday suburban life, where people emerge from the depths of the metro and hurry home past scenery so familiar that it could be in any number of Russian cities. The result channels a surprising cyberpunk edge, transforming the suburbs of Moscow and the capital’s commuter towns into the outskirts of a dystopian metropolis.
