About this deal

In August 2014, Stanton began a 50-day "World Tour" in partnership with the United Nations collecting portraits and stories in twelve countries: Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Ukraine, India, Nepal, Vietnam, and Mexico.

Coates refers repeatedly to whites’ insistence on their exclusive racial identity; he realizes now “that nothing so essentialist as race” divides people, but rather “the actual injury done by people intent on naming us, intent on believing that what they have named matters more than anything we could ever actually do. Brandon Stanton will take you on an extraordinary journey through the photos of the people living in New York. And—again, as with Riis—this acquaintance is earned by way of more than pictures and homespun snippets: the pages of “You Have Seen Their Faces” are split almost evenly between text and image; Caldwell goes on at length, magisterial and morally devastated at turns, providing a real accounting of American exploitation, and of its casualties.Humans of New York is a portal into the lives of those that we walk by every day, but never stop to ask the questions that Stanton asked. The world learned that the most influential person in Vidal’s life was Nadia Lopez, his principal at Mott Hall, and, after subsequent HONY posts featuring Lopez, marvelled at her admirable devotion, amid the imagined grayscale of still-ungentrified Brooklyn, to boosting the spirits, and lifting the ambitions, of her students.

The New York Times The photographs in this volume, some of which have never been published before, capture the city's inhabitants with a commendable eye for demographic diversity and everyday street fashion. Following the Boston Marathon bombing, Stanton spent the week collecting street portraits in Boston, Massachusetts. Humans of New York had long existed as a blog with tens of thousands of loyal followers by the time I discovered this book. Not only does Fernandez have problems with the way HOYN “exploits” people, but she has issues overall with the project. If you want to build a bridge, it’s going to take a long time and it might be hard because your employees might not be as interested in building the bridge as you are.Maybe moreso, though, I’m inspired by things that stand out: clashing things, quietly different things hiding in plain sight, things just weird enough to be obviously real. His methods and goals have changed to accommodate the newfound aesthetic appeal that the world sought. Sometimes, you can understand one’s story through their body language, a technique Stanton uses to convey messages that aren’t so obvious. My favorite story depicts a young girl walking through her hurricane-damaged neighborhood with hat, flowered raingear, colorful boots and her trick or treat Halloween pumpkin.
