Humans of New York

Brandon Stanton

Photographer Brandon Stanton’s blog and photo collection are a joy to view. They show humanity in all its oddness, ugliness and beauty. While Stanton often turns his eye to the wildly fashionable, are simply wild, his short cameo-interviews turns his subjects into the real people they are. Like Aoki’s Fruits and Cohen’s Advanced Style, he draws on a diverse group of people unscripted and unstaged. This is a marvelous collection of photos from a man with a wonderfully sharp eye.
