“A city is more than a place in space. It is a drama in time.” – Patrick Geddes

More than half of us now live in cities – surviving and thriving in a complex, manmade space. Show us urban life and the revelations of the modern world, from New York to Nairobi, São Paulo to Shanghai…

We’re interested in urban explorations and the insights they can uncover: architecture and cityscapes, urban decay, street encounters, suburban stories… All genres welcome.
