Photographer of the Month for August 2021
Brandon Stanton’s “Humans of New York” project has brought millions of people together. About a decade ago, Stanton set out to New York to photograph everyday civilians. His blog pairs a portrait of an average person with a passage about the person– their goals, their background, or whatever else he learned when he met them.
Stanton’s project shows the depth of everyday people, and how everyone has their own story and their own beauty. His seemingly simple work tells unique and impactful stories from a diverse group of subjects. He finds art and meaning behind ordinary people and everyday encounters.
