Design Hero: Brandon Stanton - Humans of New York

Brandon Stanton is a photographer who first started with a goal of photographing 10,000 people in New York. He would post a small caption of something the person had said to him while he was photographing them. This gave people insight into the lives of people they had never met and gave them something to think about each day. His posts became popular and before he knew it he had millions of fans. HONY was formed and he continued on and was able to photograph more people than ever expected. He now has 3 books full of photos and beautiful stories and was able to travel to other countries as well to take photos. He is such an inspiration to me because of the way he has created such a positive community on the internet and for the way he makes peoples stories heard. I aspire to be like him. To have my photography bring people to tears and to fill people with emotion. I want the stories expressed through my work to be bold and beautiful and something that people will always remember. I want my work to make people feel something like Brandon has.
