  14. 14. Urban Landscape vs. Documentary Photography Urban landscape photography is closely related to Documentary photography but there are some differences. It doesn't chronicle significant events that are historical in nature. Its a little disorganized in that images of random cites, building and people are taken with no specific intent or knowledge of the persons life. Tends to focus on the present.
