Cities are constantly changing and provide much inspiration to photographers. The scenes of people moving around, new and old buildings, and the contrast between man-made and natural—cities are always overflowing with attractive motifs. In addition to being used as a critic and record of the times, a great number of works have been created from the artistic snapshots of photographers. Cities are great subjects for photographers to demonstrate their skills. Tokyo in particular, continues to change from moment to moment as the 2020 Tokyo Olympics draws close. This also brings no end to the things that disappear as they are caught in the vortex of change. We are waiting for city photographs from a variety of perspective that envelop the energy of our time.
