We have featured Brandon Stanton and his Humans of New York Project a couple times here on Fstoppers (here, and here.) However, after watching the latest video of him produced by the team at Facebook I just had to share. What I love most about this video is watching Stanton have genuine conversations with people on the street before and after photographing them.
The caption under the video details Stanton's story.
"Brandon Stanton moved to New York in 2010. As an amateur photographer, he was fascinated by the crowds of characters throughout the city. He began to take street portraits of the people he met and share them in an album on his timeline named, Humans of New York.
As his photos started to gain a following, he created a Facebook Page that started a movement. There are now “Humans of …” Facebook Pages for nearly every major city in the world, while Stanton himself is something of a celebrity on the streets of New York.
Brandon’s Facebook community of more than 2.3 million people is more than just an audience. Together, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity and have propelled Brandon to become a New York Times bestselling author after he published a book of his work in 2013.
