The aim of this editorial project dedicated to street photography is to provide the reader with an overview of micro-stories told through images.
These authentic and immediate images have in common an element which is either obvious or just hardly visible. The stories are divided into four chapters dedicated to the origin of the world, a process that goes through the animal evolution (Origins/Instinct), it evolves to achieve progress (Progress) and ends in the apparent self-realization that sometimes leads to getting lost without a meaning (Endgame). The photos all together make up an organic collage that reveals the City and its secrets.
The photos that narrate these stories have been selected from URBAN 2015 ranking. URBAN is an annual international photography competition which gathers thousands of competing photos and hundreds of participants from all over the world. The photographers inserted in this publication use their sensitivity when approaching the protagonists or everyday life.
