Us citydwellers are perpetually busy. But while we're busy squeezing ourselves through hordes of fellow commuters, checking our phones repeatedly for more information to saturate our brains with, we often fail to notice the city around us.
These photographers stand still in the moving crowd and capture the moment where the essence of the city reveals itself. They draw our attention to the archetypal architecture and the diversity of the neighborhoods. To the roads and bridges that allow transportation, or maybe just to the people in a restaurant or coffee shop. They all belong to this great mesh network that makes a city.
We asked urban photographers all over Europe to send us their photos and ideas inspired by their city.
