City lovers, feast your eyes on our magnificent selection of urban landscape photography. Like its artists, KAZoART wishes to share its love for the vibrant and energetic life that animates cities. If your more of a countryside dweller, you too will undoubtedly be charmed by our urban photography!
The city serves as the main décor alongside the passers-by, tourists and inhabitants for photographers Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Robert Doisneau and Helen Levitt and is showcased in Berenice Abbott’s Changing New York project, where realism takes precedence over artistic conception. Andreas Gursky enjoys highlighting the immensity and ironic detail of the city landscape through his Montparnasse urban landscape photography.
The city is sublimated and fantasized in Grégory Crewdson's photos populated by ghostly characters, while it appears colourful in Ernst Haas' (Images of magic city). Finally, Bernd and Hilla Becher are two photographers who focus on the industrialization of the city in a documentary-style approach.
The city is above all a living environment where people from various backgrounds and classes meet and merge into the "hustle and bustle". Meetings, industries, sales, technical and architectural innovations all unite in one single place. Urban photography's representation of the living environment varies depending on the era and the culture. City photos, architecture, urban landscapes: the sources of inspiration are never-ending.
Perceived as invigorating by some photographers, yet as a symbol of precariousness and social differences by others, urban photography reflects the changes in society and constantly inspires those who have the talent to reveal a part of its character in their urban photos.
