While Brandon's first release was an excellent book of photography, it lacked many of the stories behind the individuals. I came to find HONY on facebook and feel the story behind the photo is half the experience. With his newest release, it all comes together to give you the full HONY package that most people have come to know and love. This book is a bargain for all the passion and work that Brandon puts into this project.
If you are deciding on whether or not to buy the book, consider the following, which Brandon posted on the HONY facebook page: "I want to take a quick opportunity to remind everyone that HONY is advertisement free and almost entirely financed by book sales. (The only exception being income from a handful of speeches I give every year.) Proceeds from books have been used to pay for trips to twenty different countries over the past year alone. Even when working with large organizations like the United Nations or UNHCR, I’m always very careful to cover all costs and reimburse any expenses. I do this so that the content on HONY can remain entirely independent, self-directed, and transparent. By purchasing a book, you can help HONY continue to grow in a way that remains focused on telling people’s stories--- and nothing else. Thanks to everyone for your continued support."
Connect with real people. Get out of your box and learn about people different from you. Get to know their story. Support the project. Buy the book!
No bones about it- I adore this book. The extensive “Look Inside” feature (which for some reason is showing up on the hardcover edition but not the kindle?) and description cover what you can expect from the book so I won’t describe it here. I imagine that some people may wonder “So- pictures and quotes from the subjects, nothing else? What’s the big deal?” That IS the big deal- no comment, no judgement just the humans of New York revealed in stunning photos and their own words.
And the photographs ARE stunning. Brandon Stanton is first and foremost a photographer. The photos in this book are absolutely amazing. From the heartbreaking, desolate “I don’t want to live anymore.” to the joyous, riotous colors of “We’re the Eco Adventure Club!” each photo is a gorgeous testament to Stanton’s artistry. And whether combined with a few words or a few paragraphs, you feel that you have met and learned at least a small amount about each person.
I bought this thinking that it was something I could read a few pages at a time here and there. And you could do that- except it’s addictive. Reading the book straight through is an experience not to be missed. All the clichés are true- there is a never-ending diversity in humans and their experiences but we are really all the same.
There are books that I love and recommend to readers of their genre. But “Humans of New York” transcends genre and is a book every human can enjoy. Whether you are a complete misogynist or a great humanitarian, at minimum the book will fascinate but more likely you will find it as amazing as I do.
