My name is Brandon and I began Humans of New York in the summer of 2010. HONY resulted from an idea that I had to construct a photographic census of New York City. I thought it would be really cool to create an exhaustive catalogue of the city’s inhabitants, so I set out to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers and plot their photos on a map. I worked for several months with this goal in mind. But somewhere along the way, HONY began to take on a much different character. I started collecting quotes and short stories from the people I met, and began including these snippets alongside the photographs.

1:35 – random people, wherever they happen to be, and celebrating them on a stage every night

2:40 – fav compliment – you photo the things that other people walk by every single day and don’t notice, but somehow, you photograph them and make them beautiful

Brandon speaking at harvard – feb 2015:

http://forum.iop.harvard.edu/content/brandon-stanton-humans-new-york

stopping someone on the street and making them feel comfortable..

20 min – even if people know 20 million people will read the blog.. if they’re sitting next to their friends ..they clam up

53 min- it takes a lot of practice to be yourself.. getting rid of consciousness/nervousness

55 min – there’s a power when it gets to – oh that’s me just in different circumstances (2nd time his referenced this)

56 min – worst time – can’t think of any – because everything came to here

intimate stories of strangers…

1:01 – i deferred to ms lopez – but it’s not so much about – go to harvard – but more opening up the possibilities

1:08 – i’m just looking for a glimpse into a stranger’s life (not finding a caricature)
