Staff Reviews


There are so many things that make New York unique, vibrant, and exciting, but perhaps nothing does so more than its people. In 2010, Brandon Stanton set out to construct a photographic census of New York City, but he soon broke down the wall between street photographer and subject, and began collecting quotes and short stories from the people he met. The result is the completely addictive blog (and now book) Humans of New York, which provides glimpses into the lives of strangers in New York City. Both are absolutely compelling portraits of the residents of a city—and of humanity.

Description


Based on the blog with more than four million loyal fans, a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs and stories capturing the spirit of a city

Now an instant #1 New York Times bestseller, 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. Armed with his camera, 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.

The blog has steadily grown, now boasting millions of devoted followers. Humans of New York is the book inspired by the blog. With four hundred color photos, including exclusive portraits and all-new stories, Humans of New York is a stunning collection of images that showcases the outsized personalities of New York.

Surprising and moving, printed in a beautiful full-color, hardbound edition, Humans of New York is a celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of the city.


With 400 full-color photos and a distinctive vellum jacket

Praise For…


“An instant publishing phenomenon.” —The New York Times

“Visually arresting and disarmingly deep... The photographs in this volume, some of which have never been published before, capture the city's inhabitants with a commendable eye for demographic diversity and everyday street fashion. But it's Stanton's interviews with his subjects, usually excerpted from their rawest moments, that are the most captivating as they highlight both the hardship and the little victories of an often-unforgiving city.” —The Atlantic

“[A] lovely collection of photos and essays... The images are gorgeous, and the effect is like walking through a version of our city where startlingly honest thought bubbles appear over everyone's heads.” —New York Magazine

“There's no judgment, just observation and in many cases reverence, making for an inspiring reading and visual experience.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Some street photographers hide behind phone booths like paparazzi so their subject won't be aware of their presence, but for Stanton it's precisely that awkward interaction, the tearing down of the wall between strangers, that he covets.” —The Huffington Post
