The jungle is a wonderful place to take photos at, because it can give you lively colors and animals that would create moments that lasts a lifetime. But there is a different kind of jungle that can give photographers an image that simply transcends life. These are the urban jungles of the gritty streets of the world.

The concrete jungle provides a brief moment of possible danger, love, violence or peace. Some of the world’s best street photographers have captured these incredible images in through their lenses.
