URBAN REPORTS is:
Urban Reports is a collective of documentary photographers working on architecture and landscape. A european network of professionals able to activate partnerships and collaborations at the international level and develop projects and reportages at the urban and territorial scale.
Formed by photographers-architects from various European cities, the collective uses documentary photography to explore and report the transformations of contemporary urban landscapes. Born from a common desire to share each other’s professional experience and a vivid passion for urban chronicles, Urban Reports researches and documents today's urban condition. Working simultaneously, yet from different contexts, the collective experiences a jointed and multifaceted cooperation that makes photography a reading tool for contemporary territorial identity and a visual evidence of how the habits, society and economy may influence and affect places and the urban space.
The collective runs researches and documentation works and provides support to urban and territorial policies.
