PRAISE FOR HUMANS
'Just when we need it, Humans reminds us what it means to be human . . . one of the most influential art projects of the decade.' Washington Post

Stanton's skill at putting people at ease comes through in the spontaneity of the images, as well as in the stories they share with him.

"An instant publishing phenomenon" The New York Times
"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 head." New York Magazine
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.
Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of NY, the dialogue he's had with them has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing and moving as the photos themselves. Humans of New York: Stories presents a whole new group of humans, complete with stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candor. Let Brandon Stanton and the people he's photographed astonish you all over again.
The instant #1 New York Times bestseller
Humans of New York began in the summer of 2010, when photographer Brandon Stanton set out to create a photographic census of New York City. Armed with his camera, he began crisscrossing the city, covering thousands of miles on foot, all in an attempt to capture New Yorkers and their stories. The result of these efforts was a vibrant blog he called "Humans of New York," in which his photos were featured alongside quotes and anecdotes. The blog has steadily grown, now boasting more than a million devoted followers.
Humans of New York is the book inspired by the blog. With four hundred color photos, including exclusive portraits and all-new stories, it's a stunning collection of images that showcases the outsized personalities of New York. A celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of the city.
