Facebook Stories is a site setup by the Social Networking giant in which stories are featured that show how Facebook has helped people make a meaningful connection or accomplish something special while using the site.
In this story, Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York talks about how he started, and about the site’s success.
Brandon Stanton moved to New York in 2010. As an amateur photographer, he was fascinated by the crowds of characters throughout the city. He began to take street portraits of the people he met and share them in an album on his timeline named, Humans of New York.
As his photos started to gain a following, he created a Facebook Page that started a movement. There are “Humans of …” Facebook Pages for nearly every major city in the world, while the HONY photographer himself is something of a celebrity on the streets of New York.
