Parkour, if you’ve never heard of it, is the non-competitive sport of traversing mainly urban landscapes by running, climbing and jumping (according to Wikipedia). My husband, who is a sociologist, is studying a group of these traceurs around the Chicago area. I decided to start a personal project alongside him to document them. Here are the first set of those images.
