Why it is your favorite book ?
Humans of New York (HoNY) is a collection of photographs taken by blogger Brandon Stanton starting in 2010 of people living in and around the New York City area. The photos are accompanied by quotes or anecdotes from the subjects, seeking to capture the spirit of not only NYC but humanity. The book celebrates the differences that makes us unique while the common thread of humanity is maintained through the stories shared by the subjects. Whether its a disabled homeless person, a child sporting the latest in “micro-fashion” or a street musician trying to earn a living the photos and stories serve to remind us that we’re all in this together.
