Based on the blog with more than a million loyal fans, a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs capturing the spirit of a city 

In the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton set out on an ambitious project: to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City.  Armed with his camera, he began crisscrossing the city, covering thousands of miles on foot, all in an attempt to capture New Yorkers and their stories.  The result of these efforts was a vibrant blog he called "Humans of New York," in which his photos were featured alongside quotes and anecdotes. 

The blog has steadily grown, now boasting more than a million devoted followers.  Humans of New York is the book inspired by the blog.  With four hundred color photos, including exclusive portraits and all-new stories, Humans of New York is a stunning collection of images that showcases the outsized personalities of New York.

Surprising and moving, printed in a beautiful full-color, hardbound edition, Humans of New York is a celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of the city.


This is an amazing photography book, giving an insight of The People of New York, an insight to the city that never sleeps. I was amazed at the diversity of people in New York ,it's like everyone lives in its own world and you see all types of fashion and non fashion.

It gives a feeling of freedom, like people dont care how they look and that is refreshing, especially when you grew up in a place where appearances is everything. It makes you want to rebel and thats refreshing. I love this photography book.
