Humans of New York offers an insight into the minds and lives of unique people, young and old, living in New York. Photographer Brandon Stanton takes portraits of New Yorkers and asks them to tell him something about their life. Humans of New York takes you to all places on the emotional scale: you’ll find stories that are heartbreaking, stories that are funny, stories which make you think and stories that are simply inspiring. The project shows us all that anybody you walk past on the street has something they could teach you or amaze you with.
A Tongue With But Six Words is an ever-growing collection of six-word poems on various different subjects and themes.
