I recently purchased Humans Of New York by Brandon Stanton, I’ve heard lots of good things about it but just haven’t had time to pull the trigger on purchasing it. I came across it while walking through some hipster store (go figure) in the city and had a chance to flip through a few pages. Without reading a single line of the brief intro or the one liners that accompany most of the photographs, I knew I had to have it. The images were impressive and I love New York City.
The book starts off with Brandon giving you a little back story about his life and how the book came to be, that alone makes for a story chock full of inspiration. Keep turning the pages and you won’t be able to help but smile at the images and the humorous thoughts/quotes. It helps that there are some really great Street Photography shots page after page.
