Brandon Stanton created Humans of New York in 2010. What began as a photographic census of life in New York City, soon evolved into a storytelling phenomenon. A global audience of millions began following HONY daily. Over the next several years, Stanton broadened his lens to include people from across the world.

Traveling to more than forty countries, he conducted interviews across continents, borders, and language barriers. Humans is the definitive catalogue of these travels. The faces and locations will vary from page to page, but the stories will feel deeply familiar. Told with candor and intimacy, Humans will resonate with readers across the globe—providing a portrait of our shared experience.

Reviews

Praise for Humans

"Profound interviews and signature stunning photography."Newsweek

“A panoply of interesting stories . . . and what stories they are. A lovely, sometimes challenging testament to the universality of human nature."Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Stanton has taken his legendary storytelling and photography global . . . millions follow [him], and the empathy and love his work engenders will be a balm to many more."Booklist

"A beautiful love letter to humanity in this moving compilation . . . Stanton’s skill at putting people at ease comes through in the spontaneity of the images, as well as in the stories they share with him. It’s an outstanding survey, and each new image reveals something unique about the human condition."Publishers Weekly (starred review)
