You might know about Humans of New York from social media. The project first started in 2010 when a photographer Brandon Stanton had this amazing idea. He used his camera to take photos of people he stumbled upon in New York. Realizing he got some interesting stories from people, he soon started a blog and wrote it all down. Humans of New York: Stories is a book that captures some amazing stories he heard over time.
Stanton’s project is very popular now. It has over 17 million likes on the Facebook page and this book is both a #1 New York Times Bestseller and #1 Bestseller In Amazon’s Travel/Photography category.
Humans of New York: Stories is actually his second book inspired by this project. It features life stories from a completely different group of people. These stories are also longer than the ones you can usually see on Facebook and on the blog. The book features photographs of the people as well. It’s a great read for all who like inspiring stories and real-life situations.
