In the area: Kalininsky through the eyes of Tatyana Palyga

Initially, sleeping areas were created as territories with minimally developed infrastructure to support life. It was assumed that the main labor and cultural activity will take place in the city center and industrial zones. With the collapse of the USSR, everything changed a lot, and life on the periphery began to take many different forms. About what outskirts of the city modern photographers see in the Life around series.

Kalinin district

Photographer: Tatyana Palyga

Tatyana was born in 1982 in Cherepovets, in 2005 she received a diploma from the Cherepovets State University with a degree in philology. Since 2007, lives and works in St. Petersburg. In 2010 she graduated from the faculty of photo correspondents. Yu. A. Halperin, from 2010 to the present he has been participating in various educational programs of the Photodepartment Foundation. In 2011, she was a member of the Tokamak Art Residence in Helsinki. Her works were shown at group exhibitions in Russia, England and Italy.

In Kalininsky district I visit only occasionally, most often to catch a suburban train at the Finland Station, to visit my girlfriend or for some business. Almost nothing connects me with him. Only that in the north it borders on Central, where I live.

But the area is very charismatic, the spirit of the Soviet past is well preserved here. With numerous streets named after Russian academics and research institutes at the Akademicheskaya and Polytechnic metro stations. With constructivist architecture and picturesque ruins of Benoit's cottage. With huge parks, ponds and streams.

Taking pictures of the area, I gradually recognized it, piece by piece, and I liked it more and more. I think people are comfortable living here, without unnecessary city bustle, with everything you need. You can come here to walk in the parks, grill kebabs or ride a bike. The center really lacks such places. Kalinin district is like a separate world in which there is practically everything, and it is difficult to come up with something that it lacks.
