The Weekend Read: Humans Of New York - Brandon Stanton

After a loong wait to get this book in my possession, it turned up in the post the other day. (as a gift for my boyfriend, with the intention of first dibs. I love how things turn out.) I just couldn't keep the greatness within these pages to myself...
Brandon Stanton is the guy behind Humans Of New York. The whole idea surrounding HONY (if you dont already know?) is to create an extensive catalogue of 'NewYorkers', gathering short stories and quotes from the people he photographs, making them the subjects of his blog. New York is a city I long to visit and having glimpses into the daily lives of the inhabitants of New York is amazing. The stories that go alongside the images are so powerful and personal, it's hard to believe it can be captured in just a single shot. 

When HONY got released I just had to clear a space on my bookshelf ready for it's arrival, but I'm not ready to give up its space on my bedside table for the bookshelf just yet. All in due time..

Do you follow Brandon Stanton?
You can follow his journey over on his Blog and Instagram.
