About this deal

The book itself contains ethnic backgrounds dedicated a full page in regards to religion holiday captured from a stranger perspective.

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.Brandon Stanton initially created the book in an attempt to create “an exhaustive catalogue of New York City’s inhabitants,” but it has become a way to read humans based on their expressions and short quotes. Another hybrid text of the era, James Agee and Walker Evans’s “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men,” regards the entire enterprise with something like despair.

With over ten thousand strangers photographed and interviewed, Stanton's blog, 'Humans of New York', has evolved into a platform for intimate storytelling.

Hundreds of "Humans of" blogs have since been developed by people in different cities around the world influenced by HONY. Stanton has collected portraits in nearly 20 different countries including Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan.

Illus "A beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collecton of photographs capturing the spirit of a city. Writing isn’t brain surgery, but it’s rare when someone adept at the latter is also so accomplished at the former. As a result of the campaign, Stanton, the student, and his principal were invited to visit the White House in 2015.

In Stanton’s photo of the encounter, Vidal sits grinning behind the Resolute desk, the President and principal flanking him like wings.
