Humans of New York is a blog started by photojournalist Brandon Stanton who stops strangers in New York City to take portraits and ask questions. These snapshots often lead to short but intimate narratives about people’s lives.
While we can all relate to loss or friendship, HONY is now confirming that these experiences are universal by traveling to 10 countries with the United Nations to share stories from across the globe. While the similarities among us should be no surprise, the project is making huge waves on social media. It may help that photo captions are a lot shorter than consuming a book on social and cultural anthropology.
