Product description


"An instant publishing phenomenon." --The New York Times

"Visually arresting and disarmingly deep... The photographs in this volume, some of which have never been published before, capture the city's inhabitants with a commendable eye for demographic diversity and everyday street fashion. But it's Stanton's interviews with his subjects, usually excerpted from their rawest moments, that are the most captivating as they highlight both the hardship and the little victories of an often-unforgiving city." --The Atlantic

"[A] lovely collection of photos and essays... The images are gorgeous, and the effect is like walking through a version of our city where startlingly honest thought bubbles appear over everyone's heads." --New York Magazine

"There's no judgment, just observation and in many cases reverence, making for an inspiring reading and visual experience." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Some street photographers hide behind phone booths like paparazzi so their subject won't be aware of their presence, but for Stanton it's precisely that awkward interaction, the tearing down of the wall between strangers, that he covets." --The Huffington Post


Based on the blog with more than two million loyal fans, a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs and stories capturing the spirit of a city.
