Overview

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. His audience steadily grew from a few hundred followers to, at present count, over eighteen million. In 2013, his book Humans of New York, based on that blog, was published and immediately catapulted to the top of the NY Times Bestseller List where it has appeared for over forty-five weeks. Now, Brandon is back with the Humans of New York book that his loyal followers have been waiting for: Humans of New York: Stories. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of New York, the dialogue he's had with them has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing and moving as the photos themselves. Humans of New York: Stories presents a whole new group of people in stunning photographs, with a rich design and, most importantly, longer stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candor. Let Brandon Stanton and the Humans of New York he's photographed astonish you all over again.

Makes you think, makes you feel, makes you realize how diverse we are, yet how much we all have in common...

This new book by Brandon Stanton, a follow-up to his 2013 “Humans of New York,” is perfect for this time of the year. It’s title says it all: It is comprised of stories, some very short, many less so, which accompany photos of those whose words they are, displaying their very human-ness (if there is such a word - - and if there isn’t, there should be!). Or, if one prefers, their humanity. Perfectly captured. The second book is even better than the first, in that it adds people’s quotes along with their pictures, wonderful in themselves. Mr. Stanton has a knack of asking just the right questions which will evoke answers that get into the soul of the responder, who will have to quickly search his or her own soul for the deepest feelings hiding there. The results are what has made his blog, “HONY,” one that is followed by a staggering 15,000,000 people. The photos are taken at venues which are frequently immediately identifiable, some of which explicitly so, e.g., Coney Island, Lincoln Center, and a Crown Height synagogue, and the story-tellers anonymous, with one glaring exception: one Barack Obama. They run the gamut from a man whose best friend had committed suicide; a woman past middle age, self-described as an “international cougar;” a construction worker at what appears to be a busy Manhattan intersection, whose best quality he describes as “my body;” and nearly every other imaginable New Yorker, which itself is limitless. Highly recommended.

I brought this book for my son, who is a budding photographer. But, as I turned the pages, I found myself loving this book myself. In the end, I bought one for him and one for myself. I love it. I love the short stories about the pictures as well. It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but with these short stories, it allows the pictures to speak volumes. I love it. I highly recommend it. If you love short meaningful stories, I'd also recommend that you read a little book I found. It's called When God Stopped Keeping Score. The story of the women and the hams, the father, the son and the bible and even the story of the men and the window makes When God Stopped Keeping Score worth every penny. Hope that helps.
