It also confirms a fact that seems to escape Stanton: that the truest thing about a person, that person’s real story, is just as often the thing withheld—the silent thing—as the thing offered. Their stories are incredibly random and how Brandon gets everyday people, just like you and me, to reveal themselves so spontaneously and with such candor is eye opening.

In Humans of New York: Stories, Brandon presents portraits of a whole new group of humans, complete with stories that delve deeper and surprise with their greater candour.Stanton went on a photography tour of Chicago and Pittsburgh where he experimented with different types of photography. Rather than a overall theme, Stanton conveys important messages through his photo and caption choices, which indicate the uniqueness of each individual, as well as the co-existence of humanity as a whole. I love New York so this was good for me, and even though I’m terribly non creative, I appreciated this and can see how clever he is and how he 'gets' people.

Most hurtful, though, were the truncated captions, which often reduced the sentiment to jokes, or worse, mockery of the subject .You Have Seen Their Faces” presents the challenge of knowing other people as possible, if only gradually, and after an acknowledgement of social and racial distances. Following the Boston Marathon bombing, Stanton spent the week collecting street portraits in Boston, Massachusetts. Agee is at times almost mischievous in his illustration of the unknowability of other people and their problems—and the moral quandary involved in trying to uncover them anyway. The Brooklyn Bridge is a suspension bridge and it was built by John Roebling and his family and that’s all I remember from second grade.

Ever since Brandon Stanton began interviewing strangers on the streets of New York, the dialogue he's had with them has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing and moving as the photos themselves. This makes it seem as if a particular problem, like homelessness or addition, is personal, and not social.After much consideration, Stanton decided to push his blog to Facebook, and combined images with text began to gain followers. The Atlantic The images are gorgeous, and the effect is like walking through a version of our city where startlingly honest thought bubbles appear over everyone's head.
