"Kachalka" is a famous outdoor gym in Ukraine.
Founded by a private initiative 35 years ago, it today
offers free training facilities across 10,000 square meters
of floor area for anyone who wants to get in shape.
Working out on these mostly homemade, archaic-looking
machines is an equalizing experience, with people from
all social strata rubbing shoulders here.
The photographs taken by Kirill Golovchenko not only
document the universal bodybuilding rituals that can be
observed in emblematic form at Kachalka.
The Ukrainian bodybuilders both young and old in his
pictures also serve as a powerful and ironic visual
metaphor for the ambitious spirit of awakening in this
