Brandon Stanton, Friday 5 December 2014. Stanton's project titled Humans of New York, portrays different people from all around New York City. This man is clearly comfortable being himself, saying that he 'only has five haters'. This picture is funky and fun, and not something that you see everyday, especially in Maine.
The story behind Humans Of New York, such small beginnings that have evolved into a beautiful and realistic journalistic experience. I've loved the HONY Instagram and I just ordered his books and can't wait till they arrive in the mail!
"I was at a party on Fire Island, and this man walked in. I was about 25 at the time and recently divorced. I thought: ‘He looks interesting, I should get to know him.’ We ended up talking all night long. The next morning we were engaged, and two weeks later we were married." "So what did he say when he asked you to marry him?" "He didn’t really ask. He just said: ‘Let’s get married.’"
