Humans of New York

Para  Brandon Stanton la fotografía comenzó como un hobby, pero tras perder su trabajo a tiempo completo en 2010 decidió emprender un viaje de una semana a la ciudad de Nueva York después de esa semana decidió quedarse. Una vez reinstalado y convertido en un habitante más de una de las ciudades más pluriculturales del mundo inicio un proyecto que documentaría la vida cotiana de la “Gran Manzana” a través de una serie de retratos titulada Humans of New York que fueron publicadas por el propio Brandon en una pagina de Facebook y Tumblr con el mismo nombre.

El fotografo, comprendió que la única forma de aprender algo completamente nuevo era haciendolo, el propio Brandon relata la evolución de su proyecto de la siguiente manera:

HONY resulted from an idea that I had to construct a photographic census of New York City. I thought it would be really cool to create an exhaustive catalogue of the city’s inhabitants, so I set out to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers and plot their photos on a map. I worked for several months with this goal in mind. But somewhere along the way, HONY began to take on a much different character. I started collecting quotes and short stories from the people I met, and began including these snippets alongside the photographs. Taken together, these portraits and captions became the subject of a vibrant blog, which over the past two years has gained a large daily following. With nearly one million collective followers on Facebook and Tumblr, HONY now provides a worldwide audience with glimpses into the lives of strangers in New York City.

I want to make big business. But I got no money. And I got no connections

Seen on the Upper West Side

New York kicked my ass.

Seen on the subway

Wow, you made a real book! It’s so heavy! Take the picture quick, my arms are tired!

I moved here because there was a lot I didn’t like about myself in Pennsylvania. I knew everybody. And everyone knew me. I wanted a chance to not know anybody. And I wanted a chance for nobody to know me

I’m a Godly man.

I was afraid that I wouldn’t have the tolerance to be a parent. But it’s amazing how you find the energy.

Blackout

by Muse

Don’t kid yourself
and don’t fool yourself
this love’s too good to last
and i’m too old to dream

Don’t grow up too fast
and don’t embrace the past
this life’s too good to last
and i’m too young to care

Don’t kid yourself
and don’t fool yourself
this life could be the last
and we’re too young to see

A Merced

by Gustavo Cerati

Ey ey ey a merced
mi amor es real
me vuelvo a quedar a merced.

Ey ey ey a merced
historias de sal
me vuelven a dejar a merced

Tomar la dosis y levitar
atado a tu belleza inconsciente
que mece mi espíritu y cuelga…

Ey ey ey a merced
te escucho soñar
me vuelvo a quedar a merced

Casi quiero que te despiertes
y es porque
podrías sonreir de verme flotar…

Ey ey ey a merced
mi amor es real
me vuelvo a quedar a merced.

Letra y música: Gustavo Cerati

Feliz aniversario!
