In summer time of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton began an ambitious project —to single-handedly make a photographic census of New York City. The photos he took plus the accompanying interviews took over as the blog Humans of New York. In the first 3 years, his audience steadily grew coming from a few hundred to around one million. In 2013, his book Humans of New York, according to that blog, was published and immediately catapulted up of the NY Times Bestseller List. It has appeared on that list more than twenty-five weeks as of yet. The selling point of HONY has become so great that from the course on the next year Brandon’s following increased tenfold to, now, over 12 million followers on Facebook. In the summertime of 2014, the UN chose him to search around the world with a goodwill mission which had followers meeting people from Iraq on the Ukraine to Mexico City through photos he took.
Now, Brandon is back with all the follow up to Humans of New York that his loyal followers have already been waiting for: Humans of New York: Stories. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people around the streets of NY, the dialogue he’s had with him or her has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing, notable and moving since the photos themselves. Humans of New York: Stories presents another group of humans, that includes stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candor. Let Brandon Stanton along with the people he’s photographed astonish you.
