Humans of New York
A Number One New York Times Bestseller
From street photographer Brandon Stanton, Humans of New York is a celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of New York City, filled with photographs of its residents and stories from their lives.
Humans of New York began when photographer Brandon Stanton set out on an ambitious project: to single-handedly 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 his attempt to capture ordinary New Yorkers in the most extraordinary of moments. The result of these efforts was Humans of New York, a vibrant blog in which he featured his photos alongside quotes and anecdotes. The blog has steadily grown, gathering millions of devoted followers.
Humans of New York expands on Stanton's project with four hundred colour photos, including exclusive portraits, all-new stories, and a distinctive vellum jacket. It is a stunning collection of images that will appeal not just to those who have been drawn in by the outsized personalities of New York, but to anyone interested in the breathtaking scope of humanity it displays.
