HUMANS OF NEW YORK: STORIES
by Brandon Stanton
Launched five years ago as an ambitious online project to create a photographic census of the Big Apple, ‘Humans of New York’ ended up being one of the most inspiring blogs around, able to exceed one million hits per month and 12 million followers on its Facebook page. Photos and short interviews are both parts of its success, and the appeal has been so great that the first HONY book, published in 2013, had been a regular fixture in the New York Times Bestseller List. After travelling around the world on a goodwill mission for the United Nations, Stanton is now back with a follow up that presents an entire new group of humans, complete with their stories.
