Instead, the collision of photograph and paragraph requires a constant movement between broad themes and searing details, between sentiment and cold fact. In January 2015, Stanton photographed and interviewed a 14-year-old boy from Brownsville, Brooklyn, Vidal Chastanet, who said his greatest influence was his school principal at Mott Hall Bridges Academy, Nadia Lopez.

Humans of New York: Stories is the culmination of five years of innovative storytelling on the streets of New York City. The first photo of the children has a phototype that exhibits youth — children playing in water — whereas the phototype of the elderly man seems a typical portrayal of an old man, notably with a cigar in his mouth. But soon after it went to print, it became obvious that another book was waiting to be made—one that includes the in-depth storytelling that the blog is known for today.

Humans of New York began when photographer Brandon Stanton set out on an ambitious project: to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City. The book itself contains ethnic backgrounds dedicated a full page in regards to religion holiday captured from a stranger perspective. Humans of New York can be read easily in one day but warrants a look back to study the faces and character of Stanton’s subjects. He realized the quality of his work came from being able to convey the subjects’ personalities through emotionally charged captions.

Following Hurricane Sandy, Stanton traveled to the hardest-hit neighborhoods in New York City to photograph the residents, volunteers, and first responders who had lived through the destruction. As of March 2015 [update], the book had been on The New York Times Best Seller list for 31 weeks and was the number one Non-Fiction Best Seller for a week in 2013 and again in 2014. Brandon Stanton will take you on an extraordinary journey through the photos of the people living in New York. During the COVID-19 pandemic Stanton accepted submissions from anyone in the world for the first time, asking his followers for "their most amazing, uplifting stories" to inspire people during the crisis.Not only does Fernandez have problems with the way HOYN “exploits” people, but she has issues overall with the project. The “stories” range from single-sentence comments and quips and complaints to more lengthy tales (none longer than a couple of pages). Each story paints a raw anecdote of viewerships of people old and young, rich and poor, black and white. The emotions course along the entire continuum of human passion: love, broken love, elation, depression, playfulness, argumentativeness, madness, arrogance, humility, pride, frustration, and confusion. Stanton stated in a BBC interview that he had to use a new type of interviewing style for these subjects, because he did not think it pertinent to ask about their past or future.

I also love that Stanton has tried to put these photographs into some sort of context by the very human questions he asks of his subjects (and the illuminating -- sometimes heart-wrenching -- answers he receives). As the quotes grew longer, and the interviews deeper, Stanton developed a signature storytelling style—one that blends the lure of urban voyeurism with an eye for the extraordinary detail in seemingly ordinary subjects.Stanton's first book based on the photoblog, also titled Humans of New York, was released in October 2013.

In Humans of New York: Stories, Brandon presents portraits of a whole new group of humans, complete with stories that delve deeper and surprise with their greater candour. Humans Of New York fits together as a mosaic of city life, and the color vibrancy is primary through Stanton depiction of color and contrast. In this beautiful follow-up to the bestselling Humans of New York, street photographer Brandon Stanton celebrates our shared humanity with yet more stunning photographs and stories from the lives of ordinary, extraordinary New Yorkers. Following the Boston Marathon bombing, Stanton spent the week collecting street portraits in Boston, Massachusetts.I want to be a diplomat, and travel, and do all sorts of things that have nothing to do with being disabled. On his site, he stated his objective: "During my week in Rwanda, I focused on the stories of people who took a moral stand during the genocide. You can take something that happened in someone’s life that seems very meaningless, and by crafting it into a story, you’ve taken something that is something that can be unexplainably tragic — like the brain cancer in your nine-year-old child — and turned it into something that speaks to people and gives them meaning. Second favorite was the CEO and CFO couple, they seemed to be elderly couple, but what a power combo.
