Due to Brandon's sense to catch "special something", this is a work of art, not just snapshots of NYC residents...,
This review is from: Humans of New York (Hardcover)
"Humans of New York" by Brandon Stanton is actually more art work then the book full of photographs, that I can from the heart recommend to all those who love New York and its people, that are both specific in relation to all others cities worldwide.
For those who haven't heard of Brandon Stanton, he became famous shortly afterward initiating project of photographing nearly every person in New York City.
After he walked up and down of Big Apple and photographed many of its people, he began to publish these pictures on his blog "Humans of New York", which has quickly become extremely popular.
From the start what made his photographs different is the fact that due to his sense to catch "special something", his photographs aren't just snapshots of women and men, but also the countless beautiful images of his beloved city.
A city where its people live their different destinies, and in his photos each of these small stories is visible in countless completely different situations while he photographed each person, making this entire photo collection an extremely valuable artistic work.
If you want to make sure that this book is for you, I advise you to visit his site; looking only few of his photographs you'll be able to feel spirit of New York and his residents that were caught by photographer either in a leisure or performing some work unaware that they were photographed, and each of these pictures will tell you a story...
Due to above-mentioned I can recommend you to look and read this beautiful book which will provide an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the city with the most energy in the world.
Whether it will be on your bookshelf or if you plan to will you give it to special someone, a photo enthusiast or New York lover, this is a beautiful art book and at least for me would be perfect gift both for its content and beautiful full color edition with quality binding.
