Humans of New York

Yesterday Time Out tweeted about this incredible project a photographer called Brandon Stanton has been doing since 2010 in New York.  It's called Humans of New York. He takes pictures of people he comes across on the street and writes a bit about them on his blog.  What is so wonderful about his street photography is that his subjects are always totally engaged with him; he's not one to shoot paparazzi-style.  It's electrifying work - I have a huge weakness for street photography - and makes the most vibrant portrait of an amazing city.   Makes me think I need to get on with a project I've had in mind for ages....  See more here: Humans Of New York
