Forget, for a moment, the factual details that we have gathered in the course of knowing-but-not-really-knowing him: the aerial murder; the school so suddenly flush; the audience with the leader of the free world. Gaining millions of followers online, the photos he took and the accompanying interviews became his first book: Humans of New York. Maybe it represents all the metropolises, all that different types of people living in the same place. Thus occupying the vague space between archetype and anecdote, between the particular and the more broadly illustrative, Riis’s photos realized photography’s unique and enduring possibility—to serve artistic and documentary ends at once. Some may be having similar issues, or be completely unaware of people fighting poverty or substance abuse.

Part of what makes this book so essential is the fact that it was written under a death sentence following the diagnosis that upended his life, just as he was preparing to end his residency and attract offers at the top of his profession. His skillful readjustments and subsequent popularity even led him to be sponsored by the United Nations.When Stanton moved his work from his blog to Facebook and incorporated text is when he really gathered a following.

Self-taught photographer Brandon Stanton created it back in 2010; essentially he walked around New York City stopping random people on the streets, taking their portraits, learning snippets of their stories, and captioning the pictures with their quotes. People’s wishes, losses, difficulties, and other bits of their life’s journey are exposed for people to see and read. In this set of photographs, the street background is blurred which is repeatedly shown in HONY and to focus solely on each passion — on upper left corner, captioned “ Artemis” a women proudly holding the bear head, while at the bottom a man who’s passionate towards edgy European vibes and a women intense towards helping the homeless with necessities.
