Personal Projects: Running the World
Running the World is the working title of a new personal project that I stumbled into on my journey as a runner.
While time-consuming, running is my happy place, so to speak, where I'm all alone with my thoughts, the one or so hour where I can clear my head. I don't want to miss it. It's what helps me stay focused throughout the day and be ready for whatever comes my way.
But being a photographer means one is always alert to the visual stimuli in the world. Running offers an interesting perspective on the world, one that, from time to time, reveals little details that would remain hidden with a more active photographic process. Photographing while running is very instinctual and freeing.
This gallery of pictures represents 26 of my favorite pictures.
For more details check the captions of the pictures as well as a more detailed look at the personal work I do in general and Running the World in particular in the "The Personal Work I Do" section here. I am also regularly sharing impressions on Instagram. Let me show you the world from a runner's perspective.
