Hometown USA. Mine happens to be New York, so I’ve got much pride for the city and her spirit.
Based on the blog with more than three million loyals, this is a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs and stories of New York.
Humans of New York began in the summer of 2010, when photographer Brandon Stanton set out to create a photographic census of New York City. Camera in hand, he began crisscrossing the city, covering thousands of miles on foot, all in an attempt to capture New Yorkers and their stories. The result of these efforts was a vibrant blog he called “Humans of New York,” in which his photos were featured alongside quotes and anecdotes.
Printed in a beautiful full-color, hardbound edition, Humans of New York is a celebration and tribute. With 400 full-color photos and a distinctive vellum jacket, it’s sure to hold your attention, start a conversation or at least get you thinking. Available on Amazon for $17.00. Enjoy!
