Feature #47 Brandon Stanton “Humans of New York”

Brandon Stanton is a street photographer that runs the website humansofnewyork.com.  Over the last six months, Brandon has taken over 2000 street portraits in New York City.  His aim is to eventually gather 10,000 portraits, organize them geographically, and plot them on an interactive map.  The final result will be a sort of photographic census of NYC, showing the city’s neighborhoods through the faces of it’s inhabitants.  Brandon has also written over 30 stories about interesting individuals that he’s met along the way, so the project has expanded into a photojournalism project.
