This image is one from a series that Olya showed in an exhibition titled "The One I Wish" at the Iranian Art House in Tehran. In photographing this series Olya followed practitioners of Parkour, those who through practice and repetition are able to vault, roll, run, climb, and jump off of architectural elements found in urban landscapes. This physical discipline challenges the body and mind to overcome obstacles, and to push one's abilities to new limits.
Golnaz Olya was born and raised in Tehran, Iran graduating from Tehran University with a degree in Agriculture Engineering. She became interested in photography at 21, and it was not long after that she realized this was her professional career path. In October 2011, Olya held up her first solo photo exhibition at Iranian Artist's House in Tehran, under the name of "The One I Wish". The show was well received with over 1000 visitors to the gallery opening night. Golnaz was also a featured photographer in GPP Slidefest VI, presenting her Parkour series from Tehran.
