There are few things more attractive for a photographer — and a photo
editor, admittedly — than human bodies flying through the air in various
acrobatic contortions. Parkour is a photographer’s dream come true.
A group of Palestinian youngsters aged 12 to 23, from Khan Younis in
the southern Gaza Strip, showcased their gravity-defying stunts for the
camera. They practice in cemeteries and in former Israeli settlements.
Parkour is a physical discipline originating in France, which
combines running and acrobatics in order to get over the obstacles to
get from start to finish in the shortest possible time. It’s a method of
strength and agility training combining a variety of movements like
running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, leaping, and rolling. It uses no
equipment and is non-competitive.
