Like a cruel joke, the Urban Furniture photo series revolves around chaining down practitioners of parkour, otherwise known as traceurs. This can be considered a cruel conduct since it is clear that these athletes thrive on movement of all kind, not to mention interacting with through city surroundings. By weighing them down with metal, they are like birds in a cage.

Shot by Dimitri Daniloff, a photographer based in Paris, France, the Urban Furniture photo series plays with digital manipulations. Daniloff reveals his intent, stating on Behance, "The idea is to work on a street shot where nothing was staged." Thus, the chain, thankfully, were only added after the images were captured. Nevertheless, the Urban Furniture photo series is undeniably realistic. Stats for Chained Traceur Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
