This feature is inspired by Humans of a New York, HONY, as many refer to it. The project is a photojournalism blog, which has also been published as a best selling book by photographer Brandon Stanton. It has over four million followers, mostly on Tumblr and Facebook. HONY gives a insight to the lives of strangers in New York through photography. While some of the photos are accompanied by a short description some are not. Examples taken from Stanton’s Tumblr are shown below.

“Honestly, I don’t care what they’re doing or selling, if a kid is trying to make some honest money, I am paying up. Entrepreneurship takes a lot of courage and I think it’s a civic duty to support a child with ambition. On the flip side of that, there comes a time when you are too large to attempt back flips on the subway. Not everyone realizes.”

Senior Tyler Hohenstein “Would it be a guilty pleasure if I let people know?”
