Humans

Brandon Stanton

Overview

In 2010, Brandon Stanton set out to create a record of our modern lives by photographing 10,000 New Yorkers approached randomly on the street. The original Humans of New York project became a hit phenomenon, and while the original appeal was candid shots by a talented, untrained photographer, the accompanying narratives soon attained equal status.

Today, aside from his New York Times #1 bestselling books, Stanton enjoys an audience of over 30 million people online, and counting. Stanton's Humans blog has also raised over $12 million for good causes and featured individuals.

Now, Stanton has extended his self-guided project to 40 more countries. After five years of travel, he's able to bring even more fascinating lives to wider attention. With powerful photos and caption stories ranging from a single word to almost essay-length, Humans draws us into ordinary people's lives worldwide, making us feel like truly global citizens.
