Humans of New York: Behind the scenes with Brandon Stanton
Photographer Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York project has been around for a few years now and has been featured in the media quite a bit. The latest video of Stanton, made for Facebook's 10th anniversary, is a revealing look at how he interacts with his subjects.
He's jovial. He's conversational. But most of all, he's human – and it shows through in his images. Stanton's able to make total strangers comfortable and open to the idea of having their picture taken.
After being laid off from his Chicago bond trading job, he moved to New York in 2010 to pursue photography. He began to take street portraits of the people he met and shared them in an album on his Facebook timeline named, Humans of New York. Since then, his photographs have gained worldwide popularity, spawned copycat projects, and produced a best-selling book.
What do you think of Stanton's style of working?
