I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:
Free Photo Webinars welcomes Humans of New York’s Brandon Stanton for our November episode.
Brandon has a unique brand that is part street photography, part photojournalist, but together it is incredibly compelling.
Humans of New York began as one man’s effort to construct a photographic census of the city of New York. Over three thousand street portraits have been gathered toward this purpose.
Along the way, Humans of New York has grown into a vibrant blog. Every day new photos are added of people from every neighborhood. Taken together, these portraits cover the entire spectrum of New York’s population. The site also contains a collection of stories written about the project’s most fascinating subjects. Recently, audio-visual pieces have been added to showcase the work of New York’s artists. HONY is constantly evolving. Feel free to follow along. If you wish to participate, Humans of New York has a very active Facebook group where the most recent content is discussed.
Even though Brandon’s work is based in New York, he has wonderful insights to share about the art of approaching strangers, making them comfortable and telling their stories.
