Great book with thought provoking snaps and interviews on normal people with extraordinary thoughts. Really opens your eyes to how other people live and how they overcome adversity. Purchased for my teen daughter's birthday and she and her friends couldn't put it down. You learn something new about human nature every time you open the book.
I thought this would contain all the nice stories of the people behind the photos but there are only short quotes in this book. There's another one called stories which probably would have been what I was looking for.
I found out about this book via Facebook. I have always liked people watching and have an interest in photography and this book is amazing. New York was the first destination I travelled to as a kid and it had a profound effect on me. I really do love NYC and this book is a slice of the big apple on my bookcase. I love it!
I absolutely LOVE this book and so does all of my family, from my little brother to my grandparents. Some really inspiring and fascinating photos that make you feel great about the world. I have followed HONY on facebook for several months and I was not disappointed with this book. I have looked through it many times but I still pick it up often. Would make the perfect gift to just about anyone.
Bought this as a present for someone who follows rhe instagram account of the same name ... Some really fantastic photos of real people with real life stories . Captures the funny the sad and the bittersweet .. If you love photography and the streets of new york and interesting people then this is for you !
This made a fantastic gift for a friend as its a book that requires a minimal amount of commitment. You can simply pick it up, open it at any page and have a bit of a flick through... though you may then find yourself still stood by your bookshelf 2 hours later wondering what just happened. Its a beautifully simple concept, cataloging the stories of the inhabitants of one of the worlds most vibrant cities. It will leave you with a warm sense of appreciation for the perfection to be found in imperfection.
LOVE this book, ordered it as soon as I discovered the website. So many touching stories that constantly put your life in perspective, make you laugh, make you sad, or make you hopeful. Beautiful photography, DEFINITELY worth the price, I almost feel like it's TOO cheap for this quality of work. An absolute must, the whole family enjoys flipping through it, a wonderful portrait of humanity.
