The blog for books and movies

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.

  1. This book is something I never thought I would review but it is still a book. It’s called Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton, a photographer who started this project in 2010. Since I love photography, I thoroughly enjoyed flicking through all the pages and looking at the beautiful photos in the book. There were little quotes and notes around the pages and I could spend hours deeply exploring the photographs of these people that call New York home. Brandon recently released a book full of stories of these people that he took photos of which would be amazing to read as well. I don’t have a favourite photos that is in the book but all the photos are stunning. It is also interesting to compare my life with these people from NY. This book is a treasure to have and I give it 5 stars. A piece of art and I cannot express how much I adore it and everything it stands for.
