Humans of NewYork - A Great photography project by Brandon
In every photo, there is always a story behind it. And how you could put those story in a single photographs, to me that is the most beautiful and hardest thing in photography. And I think Brandon, did really a good job.
After 3 years working in trading business, he lost his job. So he decided to move to NewYork and to photograph NewYorkers, talked with them and sharing story with them. And it did become a great success. Here are some of my favorites quotes of those people
“My town in Colombia is very beautiful. I don’t travel because I want to leave my home. I travel because I need to know why I’m staying.” - First photo.
“People see my buttons and think I’m a radical, but I just stand for peace! Except North Korea. We should handle them.” - 2nd photo.
“What’s your favorite thing about your dad?”
“He lets me beat him up and doesn’t cry.” - 3rd photo
“What’s your favorite thing about him?”
“No matter what, he makes the best of it.”
