A Number One New York Times bestseller, Humans of New York began in
the summer of 2010, 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, now boasting nearly a million devoted
followers. Humans of New York is the book inspired by the blog.
With four hundred colour photos, including exclusive portraits and
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. Heartfelt and moving, Humans of New York is a celebration
of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of a city.
