An Atmosphere of the Marvellous


Urban Life Editors’ Pick

“The life of our city is rich in poetic subjects. We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvellous; but we do not notice it” – Charles Baudelaire

Following Peter Funch’s selection of winning images for our ‘URBAN LIFE’ theme, this compilation of 20 images, selected by the Life Framer editors represents some of the other talented photographers whose work struck us and left a mark. Some are more literal representations of the theme, and others are more abstract, but each one is a stunning image worthy of exposure and attention.

These are intended to be a conversation starter… so feel free to join the discussion on our social networks.

“Over time our urban environment evolves. And gains in beauty far beyond the imagination of its designers. Since 2014 I have been exploring the impact that people, nature and weather have on urban development. For my project ‘Urban Erosion’ I mainly work in my hometown of Rotterdam, but occasionally I work in other European cities”.
