City is formed by its inhabitants. New York is what it is today because of its eight million residents who came from everywhere to live here. ‘The Humans of New York,’ a book by Brandon Stanton, proves that the aphorism - ‘Once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker’ - still rings true. The young photographer began his project in 2010 as a blog where he posted his photographs of the city’s inhabitants, both the native citizens and the newcomers. The collection of photographs and fascinating stories from the residents of every borough form a complete portrait of New York, reflecting its kaleidoscopic diversity and the striking characters of its citizens that make it a rich and dynamically vibrant place.
