The art of running and jumping

BBC South East's Polly Evans went to a quiet corner of Tunbridge Wells to meet the TNPK Freerunners, who train regularly in parkour, or l'art du d├ęplacement (meaning "the art of movement") and publish films about their sport online.
They were spotted by local photographer, Steve Collins, who has been capturing their art, as part of his, for a collection of works being displayed in an exhibition about Tunbridge Wells.
He is hoping that his images will show the amazing feats the members of the Freerunners can perform, and portray teenagers in a different, more positive, light.

Steve Collins' photos can be seen at Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery until the end of May 2010.
