With your support, the Parkour Calendar 2021 will be printed with 13 inspiring photos by some of the most famous Parkour photographers from our community. True passion! The calendar measures 40x60cm (15,75in*23,6in) and will be printed with the highest quality offet printing in Germany. If the 2nd funding goal is reached, the photographers will be paid appropriately and there will be a 13th page with detailed information about each photo and its history. Pure passion!
After the success of the last Parkour Calendar it is again time to put real Parkour photos on your wall. The basic conditions:
Portrait format with huge 40x60cm (15,75in*23,6in)
13 different photographers from all over the world
Best printing quality with offset printing
Sustainable in production & shipping
Social media floods our brains with an endless stream of photos. With this calendar I wanted the opposite: each photo "hangs" for 30 days, spending more than just 3 seconds on your mind.
The calendar consists of 13 photos in the huge A2 format (40*60cm; 15,75in*23,6in). The professional print is shown to its best advantage on the high-quality paper. The calendar is a community project with 13 different photographers from the worldwide parkour community:
Andy Day (UK)
Alexandros Charos (AUT)
Benny Yefremov (ISR)
David Tressler (NZ)
Henry Laatzig (GER)
Kevin Mercier (FRA)
Noah Heath (USA)
Phillip Graaf (GER)
Pierre Biege (SUI)
Scott Bass (UK)
Steve Zavitz (USA)
Wouter de Mol (BEL)
I hope you like the photos and that you feel inspired to move and train.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We like to promote parkour photography with this calendar project and bring beautiful unique photos to your wall. This project is for everyone who appreciates this.
The project is made by passionate traceurs for traceurs and those who are enthusiastic about this art of movement.
Why would you support this project?
The project promotes parkour photography, and if we reach the 2nd funding goal, the photographers will be appropriately paid too, helping us to enjoy more authentic parkour photos in the future.
In short: I want to promote parkour culture.
Sustainability was absolutely important to me during production: FSC paper, local print shop in Cologne and the delivery will be CO2 neutral worldwide
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
If the financing is successful, then the calendar will be printed by 15 December 2020 and delivered to your door by DHL (GreenGo). If the second financing goal is reached, there will also be the 13th calendar page with background information on each photo, and the photographers will be appropriately paid, meaning that in the future there will be even more beautiful and authentic parkour photos from all over the world.
Who are the people behind the project?
My name is Philipp Raasch. I have been practising Parkour since 2003 and am part of the German Parkour community. I live, train and teach Parkour in Cologne.
Ole is the designer of the calendar and also a traceur in the Cologne Parkour community. The design of the calendar is based on Parkour: simple and efficient, but aesthetic.
