Based on the blog with more than four million loyal fans, a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs and stories capturing the spirit of a city
Now an instant #1 New York Times bestseller, Humans of New York began in the summer of 2010, when photographer Brandon Stanton set out to create a photographic census of New York City. Armed with his camera, he began crisscrossing the city, covering thousands of miles on foot, all in an attempt to capture New Yorkers and their stories. The result of these efforts was a vibrant blog he called "Humans of New York," in which his photos were featured alongside quotes and anecdotes.
The blog has steadily grown, now boasting millions of devoted followers. Humans of New York is the book inspired by the blog. With four hundred color photos, including exclusive portraits and all-new stories, Humans of New York is a stunning collection of images that showcases the outsized personalities of New York.
Surprising and moving, printed in a beautiful full-color, hardbound edition, Humans of New York is a celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of the city.
With 400 full-color photos and a distinctive vellum jacket
Through diaries, letters, and rare photographs and art works, this book evokes the many struggles and indispensable contributions of women who forged the nation we know today. Ranging from the outrageous -- daring young woman smoke in the Gilded Age! -- to the heartstopping -- an African-American woman jumps to her death rather than face slavery -- Lucey masterfully reveals that women's contributions to the life of America did not begin only with the right to vote, but long before even the concept of such a right became the American ideal.
Intimate, compelling, and richly illustrated, I Dwell in Possibility is a truly unique look at American history.
