Parkour is a breathtaking pursuit which has enjoyed a rise even its participants might call meteoric during the past decade.© Kiell
The high-energy, non-competitive sport sees practitioners run, climb and jump. The aim is to navigate obstacles as efficiently as possible, using only the body.© Kiell
Communities of Parkour fans are widespread, from famously lithe French "freerunners" and groups across the UK to teams of daredevil chasm crossers in the US, Nicaragua and India.© Kiell
The flâneur and the traceur (a Parkour practitioner) both have their origins in Paris, where 200 years ago agile visionaries found new ways of moving through the city spaces.© Kiell
The show is part of the Art of Architecture – a series of exhibitions contemplating how artists engage with the built environment and influence our world.© Kiell
"Andy Day's brilliant photographs capture the energy of the practice and provide a fascinating insight into how we interact with the environment around us in an artistic manner," says The Public's Linda Saunders.
