Running crews have been a growing phenomenon since their creation in New York City over ten years ago. In Australia there’s a burgeoning running crew scene full of creative minds that run together but also create, eat, and party together. Kind of like a social club, but a very active one.
To introduce us to the new wave of Melbourne runners we asked photographer Ben Clement, one of Melbourne running crew AM:PM’s founders, to shoot portraits of his running mates. In this photo essay Ben captures both runners and their gear, contrasting the two against each other to capture the spirit of modern running culture.
