I came across this amazing blog the other day by photographer Brandon Stanton. He began “Humans of New York” in summer of 2010.
At first Brandon idea was to take 10,000 photos of the citys inhabitants and plot them on a map, but along the way the project began to take on a much different character…. Instead he started collecting quotes and short stories from the people he met, and included these snippets alongside the photographs. Taken together, these portraits and captions make up his vibrant blog, which over the past two years has gained a large daily following. Below are some of his photographs!
