Humans of New York: Stories by Brandon StantonIn 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. In the first three years, his audience steadily grew from a few hundred to over one 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. It has appeared on that list for over twenty-five weeks to date. The appeal of HONY has been so great that in the course of the next year Brandons following increased tenfold to, now, over 12 million followers on Facebook. In the summer of 2014, the UN chose him to travel around the world on a goodwill mission that had followers meeting people from Iraq to the Ukraine to Mexico City via the photos he took.
Now, Brandon is back with the follow up to Humans of New York that his loyal followers have been waiting for: Humans of New York: Stories. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of NY, the dialogue hes 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 humans, complete with stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candour. Let Brandon Stanton and the people hes photographed astonish you.

Humans of New York — the viral photography blog known for chronicling every day images of New Yorkers — has influenced a handful of New York City high schools to start their own Facebook pages. The "humans of" concept became an Internet phenomenon after the New York blog was launched in , and has since spread to other cities around the world. Colleges and universities have also joined the movement, with schools like New York University and Syracuse University creating Facebook photoblogs of campus life. Now, high schools are representing this unique way of storytelling with teen-run Facebook pages replicating the "humans of" style of photography and caption-writing.
