    • Thank you for sharing these heartwarming thoughts.

      The Humans of New York is so positive, it's inspired other projects that help make a difference:

      Inspired by the work of photographer and humanitarian Brandon Stanton — the man behind photo blog Humans of New York — artist Mikaël Theimer began his own series documenting people in Montreal. The project, coined Humans of the Street,
      is similar in style to Stanton’s, as it captures the faces of Theimer’s
      subjects and notes thoughtful quotations they had to share.

    • Brandon is phenomenal and the story of how he got into this is too amazing to be fiction. A bond trader in Chicago who got fired. He started taking pictures as a hobby. Then he started asking people on the streets if he could take their pictures. He started interviewing them about their lives and writing something to go with the picture.

      I think his magic formula is best captured by this short interview clip. This bit of magic would make us all better.

    • I see your phenomenal video clip and I raise you this one, if you have time for a deeper dive:

      I'm ashamed to say with my long-time love of photography and ownership of SmugMug & Flickr, I didn't know much about Brandon other than he had a couple of #1 New York Times bestselling books. That should have told me something.

      Thank you jpop for enlightening me.
