Outstanding collection of life stories conveyed in portrait photography with interviews. Beautiful!
It's easy to forget that there are real stories inside the people that we find strange or unapproachable. Brandon Stanton has made it his mission to take those stories that hide within and make them visible to the rest of us.
New York is just one of those place, you know? Everyone owns their little piece of it and Stanton presents that to the world with his amazing photographs. This collection places fashion and eccentricities right next to everyday, quiet moments. You see introverts and extroverts in full display and people of all shapes and sizes. One of the quotes under the feet of a beautiful girl standing with a vintage looking travel case asks, "Are you going to make fun of me?" While in another a man holding a red cape says, "I didn't even start dancing tango till I was 62." It's beautiful in ways that can only be captured in photographs.
It was as if you were walking the streets of New York, and having a heart-to-heart with your fellow man. Stanton's book is endearing and has a page for everyone. Eagerly anticipating his next release. :)
Brandon's first book. I follow Humans of New York on Facebook and Instagram and always love reading the captions and seeing the pictures.
This is a fantastic book and while it doesn't have the same in-depth descriptions as his newest book, it includes some really wonderful photography, interesting people, and funny captions. Definitely a book worth reading and buying!
You don't get as much of a story as online, but cool photos with funny captions
If you think people are interesting, then you'll really like this book! Brandon captures in photos a moment in time and shares an observation or a comment from these colorful New Yorkers!
I think that no matter who you are or where you are from, you will find someone in this book who touches you.
I love all the stories and glimpses into people's lives that this book offers. If you're a fan you should check out the Facebook page.
Fantastically beautiful and inspiring and compelling, just like the blog: http://www.humansofnewyork.com/ Love the background bits that are sometimes provided in the book about the people or getting the shot.
