Powerful Acrobatic Images of Parkour in Motion

New York-based photographer and videographer Ben Franke catches the beautiful, acrobatic activity of parkour. The photographer followed New York City free athletes, known as tracers, for a few years, saving their fitness expertise as they easily roamed about the city roads with a energy for life. Finally, he decided to take his personal venture to the next level by producing a collection of considerably fascinating portraits of these sportsmen for his sequence named Parkour Movement.

With a Cannon 5D Mark II in hand, equipped with a 24-70mm lens, the photographer took some amazing photos of these city sportsmen interesting in gravity-defying tricks across the concrete forest. To further emphasize their agile skill, the photographer used flour to creatively track their vivid motion. Franke's purpose with the venture was to existing a sequence of portraits similar to those that compliment performers for their physical achievements and existing the beauty in their action. The photographer says :
"It’s a challenge for any photographer to convey authentic movement in a photograph — as it’s a 2D medium — but my series Parkour Motion attempts to translate motion by displaying the energy and power of these athletes."

The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.
