The best kinds of photos are those that stop viewers in their tracks—photos that reveal something new and unexpected even at the quickest glance. This collection is all about seeing the city from a different perspective, through the eyes of street photographers. They have reinterpreted the familiar urban environment to show something an unexpected side of it.

Being both engaging and relatable, these are the kinds of photos you can use as attention-grabbers or to illustrate stories about city life and urban developments. Not quite what you need? Make sure to check out EyeEm’s collections for more visual inspiration.
