#allcitiesarebeautiful is a curated collection of international photographers working in the field of urban documentary & contemporary street photography, interviews, essays on photography, and magazine and book recommendations.

Not driven by sensationalism but rather out of curiosity for the small things that define our life and the lives of others, #allcitiesarebeautiful celebrates the beauty of the ordinary and is devoted to seeking beauty in places in which we normally wouldn’t look for it.

„You take delight not in a city’s seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours.“ – Italo Calvino / Invisible Cities
