Meet The Human Behind 'Humans Of New York' (HONY)

The human collector of HONY pictures shares with us how goes about getting those memorable stories and pictures of fast moving New Yorkers. If you have not seen or heard about HONY then click below and find out what makes Brandon Stanton's website so popular around the world and photographers alike. An entire accumulation of 5,000 photos of New Yorkers is a pretty substantial figure for reluctant and snappy straphangers of the city trying to get home, trying not being late to work and shooing away  people looking to waste our time. Brandon Stanton captures just more than simple street portraits. He captures their lives and souls in portions of time in their lives readers and viewers get to share in. Every photo he posts touches something deep inside of us when people share there once memorable happy and sad events, advice and lessons of there lives. Thanks Brandon Stanton!

Graffiti Cans (Decades Old)

The amount of empty, derelict and rust out cans shows the amount of layers of covered art pieces forever lost to new artful pieces never to be seen again. Graffiti art is like love lost. It is there one fleeting moment and the next moment it is gone forever. Gritty street art does not always last forever.

Brooklyn is in the house!

Cuba Libre!

Cuba, a set by @Doug88888 on Flickr. I would really love to get a chance to shoot pictures before Cuba is modernized once either before the embargo is lifted and is overrun by tourists or new leaders open up the country to partial capitalism like China. The old school atmosphere just oozes from this place like fine wine and cigars.

Cuba was a magical, amazing country to visit. So full of vibrant characters and spectacular scenery. Cuba is a place I could visit again and again. I hope you enjoy this gallery.

My Führer...

A very colorful portrait I call the German Hitler. This boxed looking portrait reminds me of the Führer in a whimsical caricature light. I am so pleased to release these never before seen graffiti people rarely see this deep in Brooklyn where I live. It really shows the character and flavor of these unknown artists whose works most people will never know about except those who traverse this graffiti line I frequent. Bringing these artworks to life and spreading it to the masses is a duty. What is so different from a Rembrandt and a Picasso in a museum to a tagged wall filled with such vibrant works of color and composition? I hope you like it as much as I do because it brings a smile to my face trying to figure out what mood and mindset the artist came to creating such pieces.
