█ PARKOUR

This series portrays the tracer and parkour artist François Dernoncourt.

The different photos depict the trust between François and Guillaume. While taking those photos, either one of them, if not both were at risk. Taking any of the photographs from this series requested a deep understanding of the needs of their respective art.

The meeting of those practices allows the ones watching those photos to think of themselves both as the parkour artist and the witness. Parkour shows us how playful our environment is, and how impotent we have become in consideration of the capabilities of our bodies. These photographs allow the sharing of spectacular views of this mobility most of us lack of, while keeping us safe from injuries. They also force the spectator to notice what most of us would consider a dangerous performance, often on the edge of safety.
