This exhibition features “unusual everyday scenes” that give the viewer a glimpse of what really happens on the streets of these European cities. While walking through this gallery it’s as if you are keeping up with the lives of total strangers. Watching them swim, walk down a rainy street or even get into a car as they speed off to work is surprisingly enthralling.

Regardless of where they were taken, some of the photos generate a universal expressive power. Other photos highlight architectural details.
