Brandon came to New York four years ago, at age 26, an amateur street photographer with the idea of creating what he calls “a visual census” of the five boroughs. What he has created has now become, in the words of The New York Times: « …an instant publishing phenomenon. » HONY has been featured in The Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, he has appeared on Nightline, CBS This Morning, Fox and Friends, has been a « person of the week » on the ABC Nightly News and a Time Magazine « 30 under 30 » who have changed the world.
The highly anticipated new book HUMANS OF NEW YORK: STORIES expands on the richness and beauty of the first book, and delves deeper, as the website now does, turning the book more into a storytelling experience than a purely photographic one. With an almost 20% larger page count, more photos, more stories, much bigger reach and following and prestige for the project, this is destined to be one of the biggest bestsellers of the year.
Brandon Stanton studied at the University of Georgia and worked as a bond trader in Chicago before starting “Humans of New York”—a photography and storytelling blog—in the Summer of 2010. He has appeared on Ellen, Good Morning America, Nightline, MSNBC, CNN, has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, Mashable, and dozens of other media venues. He has also been named a ‘person of the week’ on the ABC Evening News with Diane Sawyer, and a Time Magazine “30 Under 30 Who are Changing the World” and has photographed President Obama in the Oval Office. He is the author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller HUMANS OF NEW YORK and the New York Times bestselling children’s book LITTLE HUMANS.
