An Amazon Best Book of the Month, October 2013: The thing that
always amazes me about New York is that it works at all: so many
people, stacked on top of each other in apartments or wedged
side-by-side on the streets, that it once seemed--to my
admittedly West Coast eyes--that there could be no room to
breathe, to stretch, to be human in such a seemingly inhumane
environment. Even the garbage (the literal garbage; no Travis
Bickle allusions here) is pushed to the sidewalk--there’s not
even space between buildings to hide it. But once I’d been
there--admittedly late--I understood that it’s the people
themselves that make it work; that diversity and self-expression
(not to mention the necessity) create a kind of space on their
own. Brandon Stanton gets it. His thousands of not-quite-candid
street portraits of New Yorkers (and accompanying captions,
usually from the subjects themselves) have made his Humans of New
York blog both poignant and extremely popular. And now, his book
of the same title collects 400 of his best portraits, telling
small stories that are outsized in their humor, candor, and
humanity. As it turns out, inner-space is a dimension all its
own, and it counts, too. --Jon Foro
