One New York portrait photographers project that took on a life of its own. Follow HONY on social media and join over fifteen million followers already captivated by Brandon Stanton’s photographs, stories, quotes and interviews of people living in New York City. Stanton’s first book Humans of New York is a New York Times Bestseller and his second book, released in October, Humans of New York: Stories has already made the list too. After a little research it’s heartwarming to learn more about Brandon’s story. A graduate of the University of Georgia and a former bond trader who found himself unemployed like so many Americans. He decided to pick up and move to New York City turning a very unique personal project into a organically grown and wildly popular blog. Through his success it’s nice to learn Brandon Stanton makes it a mission to help others. In 2013 Stanton made Time Magazine’s list of 30 people under 30 changing the world. And in 2014, Stanton was chosen by the UN to travel around the world on a goodwill mission trip to photograph people of Iraq, Ukraine and Mexico City. A truly unique and thoughtful gift for anyone on your Holiday gift list. –SoS

If she can nail this style icon she can translate anyone or anything to canvas or paper. Commission her today ( This piece will be a welcome addition to our work space.
