Humans of New York


Humans of New York is the brainchild of Brandon Stanton, a photographer capturing the faces of New York City inhabitants since 2010. What started out as a project to photograph 10,000 people quickly developed into people sharing pieces of their lives. Today, Stanton has millions of followers and has worked internationally with the United Nations to photograph citizens of the world. Stanton has been sharing his work for years now, but even today, his work deserves more recognition for shining a light on the character of this vibrant city.
