What do you think of when you hear the term “cityscape”? For some of us it evokes images of skyscrapers and deep alleys, for others it describes the texture of an urban environment. Cities are places of diversity, ideas, and different lives, all played out before a common backdrop.

Even if you live in a city, photos of cityscapes have something thrilling about them: A picture captures all the different layers of a city in one frame, a captivating mix of street signs and storefronts, pavements and people.

In this collection, we’re showing you a look at cityscapes through the lens of the EyeEm community. You’ll find cities from across the globe, the everyday view of life within it, and all the details that make each city unique. All of the photos in this collection are available on EyeEm Market, meaning that you can license them right away.
