Now a #1 New York Times Bestseller.
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 often grew from a couple of hundred to over one million. In 2013, his book Humans of New York, based on that blog, was once published and immediately catapulted to the top of the NY Times Bestseller List. It has appeared on that list for over twenty-five weeks to date. The appeal of HONY has been so great that during the next year Brandon’s following increased tenfold to, now, over 12 million followers on Facebook. In the summertime of 2014, the UN chose him to commute world wide on a goodwill mission that had followers meeting people from Iraq to the Ukraine to Mexico City via the photos he took.
Now, Brandon is back with the follow up to Humans of New York that his loyal followers have been waiting for: Humans of New York: Stories. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of NY, the dialogue he is had with them has more and more grow to be 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 is photographed astonish you.
