After Ryan, the 28-year-old freerunner and parkour athlete from the UK, finished travelling the globe in a quest to discover his own seven wonders of the world, he chose Baku, Azerbaijan, as a place where he could expand his freerunning horizons in a completely different way.
Baku is known as the City of Contrasts. Ryan decided to use that and create together with the production crew a unique video, which would be a contrast indeed to other parkour videos – something quite surreal with a different feel and different look – featuring his own philosophy.
“When you are a freerunner, it does not have to be all about destination and going from point A to point B, at the end of the day I am not trying to get anywhere and nobody is chasing me. I realized that it was time for me to do something really different – an artistic and poetic video where I can just dance and play with the environment,” said Ryan.
