Back in the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton began an ambitious project – to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City. The photos he took and the accompanying interviews became the blog Humans of New York. In the first three years, his audience steadily grew from a few hundred to over one million. In 2013, his book Humans of New York, based on that blog, was published and immediately catapulted to the top of the NY Times Bestseller List where it stayed for many weeks. The appeal of the Humans of New York blog has been so great that in the course of the next year Brandon's following increased tenfold to over 12 million followers on Facebook and is still growing.
With his second inspiring look at the residents of New York, let Brandon Stanton and the people he's photographed astonish you.
The latest from Stanton (Humans of New York), creator of the "Humans of New York" blog, which currently has over 14 million followers, is another rich collection of photographs of people from the streets of New York City and their stories. The strength of his work is the range of perspectives and experiences he captures. His subjects vary in age, nationality, religion, and other demographics, and their individual stories reflect on different facets of the human experience, from struggles to heartbreak to inspiration. Some of his subjects tell him about past experiences steeped in nostalgia, while others consider their present and future predicaments. A powerful four-page spread shares the story of a student from Mott Hall Bridges Academy who named the principal of his school as the biggest influence in his life, inspiring Stanton to visit the school, photograph the principal, and hear her story. Another photo shows the same student and principal with President Obama in the Oval Office, followed by a portrait of the president and the story of his own greatest influence. New readers and seasoned fans can't help but become engrossed with the stories Stanton tells. Color photos.
