Brandon Stanton        

Photographer, Author & Creator of Humans of New York

Brandon Stanton studied at the University of Georgia and worked as a bond trader in Chicago before starting “Humans of New York”—a photography and storytelling blog—in the Summer of 2010. Over the course of seven years, Humans of New York (HONY) has built a devoted following of over 20 million fans on several social media platforms. He has appeared on Ellen, Good Morning America, Nightline, MSNBC, CNN, has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, Mashable, and dozens of other media venues. He has also been named a ‘person of the week’ on the ABC Evening News with Diane Sawyer, and a Time Magazine “30 Under 30 Who are Changing the World,” and has photographed President Obama in the Oval Office. He has taken his work to some of the world's most remote and troubled regions, and has used the storytelling power of his site to raise money for several life-changing altruistic purposes. He is the author of two #1 New York Times Bestsellers, Humans of New York (2013) and Humans of New York: Stories (2015) and the Children’s book bestseller Little Humans (2014). In 2017, he expanded his project into longform video with the launch of Humans of New York: The Series on FaceBook Watch.
