Brandon Stanton: the King of Street Photography

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 15, 2014, 8:22 AM

The guy is an over-gifted and passionate street photographer. Have you ever heard of Humans of New-York ? HONY for more than 10 millions people following his adventures on Facebook.



  


Brandon Stanton (born March 1, 1984) is an American photographer and blogger, most known for his photo blog, Humans of New York (HONY), started in 2010. The blog features street portraits of people in New York City, along with snippets of conversations. In October 2013, his first book, Humans of New York was released; it soon became a bestseller. By October 2014, his blog had over 10 million followers on Facebook and around 400,000 on Tumblr (www.humansofnewyork.com/photog….


  


Stanton continues to live in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. He now uses a Canon EOS 5D Mark III with only a single lens, the Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM lens and on most days takes street portraits walking through New York streets and subways, usually during the daytime or in well-lit streets, as he prefers not using a flash. Besides taking photographs for his blog, Stanton also works as a commercial photographer. In 2013, he shot an ad campaign for Amtrak, which was published in the Washington Post.



  


The book Humans of New York, reached number 1 position on The New York Times Non-Fiction Best Sellers of 2013 for November 3, 2013 week. In December 2013, TIME magazine placed him in its list, "30 Under 30 World Changers". On its 10th anniversary, in February 2014, Facebook produced videos, "Facebook Stories", which also included a short video on Humans of New York. On February 14, ABC News ran a feature on him titled, Valentine's Day with the 'Humans of New York'. He travelled to the Middle East in August 2014 amidst the ongoing Middle east crisis, as apart of a 50-day trip through 10 countries in the region under the auspices of the United Nations.
