Humans of New York

Photographer BRANDON STANTON

About - I get really passionate about things.  At some time in my life, I’ve been obsessed or borderline-obsessed with saltwater aquariums, the baritone euphonium, Barack Obama, reading, piano, filming, financial markets, New York City, and photography.  I was once arrested for taking photographs inside Gianni Versace’s South Beach mansion.  It was 3 AM.  I was super drunk.  I studied History at the University of Georgia.  During my senior year of college, I took out $3,000 in student loans and bet it on Barack Obama to win the presidency.  A friend heard about this bet and got me a job trading bonds on the Chicago Board of Trade.  I traded for three years.  It went really well for awhile.  But then it went really bad.   Whoops.   After I lost my trading job, I decided to move to New York City and take portraits of strangers on the street.  Mom wasn’t too happy about that decision, but so far it’s gone pretty well.  I’ve taken nearly 5,000 portraits and written 50 stories.  And I’ve met some amazing people along the way.
