I have however got the Humans Of New York stories which I absolutely love and delve into every now and again just because so I think I will enjoy this first book when I get to open it on Christmas night.
I love street photography and this is just that but at it's best. It's also one of the most inspiring books I have seen for a very long time. Brandon breaks every rule in the book when it comes to taking the photos (no thought to depth of field and certainly none whatsoever to the rules of thirds) but it really doesn't matter. This is more than just a book of photographs. Each one has it's own story and it's that, that makes it brilliant. I've followed 'Humans Of New York' on Facebook for ages and now that I have this book, it's like a 'Best Of'. At the end of the day, buy it.... You'll love it!
What a lovely book. I'm originally from New York and am now terribly homesick after paging through it. There's such an exuberance not only to the city's denizens but to the way the photographer presents them. He seems to really like people, which is a nice thing in a photographer (and not necessarily required for the job - cf Helmut Newton, for a random example).
Having followed Niall McDiarmid's amazing Crossing Paths project (search it out and buy his book today!) I was apprehensive about this one but shouldn't have been, it's wonderful. Each photo tells a story before you've read the snippet of text that goes with each. Happy to sad, funny to serious, life is all here.
I smiled all the way through and read it in one sitting. Majestic stuff.
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 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!
