Little humans are helpful and playful, friendly and loving, flexible and resourceful.
They love their brothers and sisters, their moms and dads, and their friends.
Little humans are growing each day. They won't be little for long. Soon they will be... BIG!
Street photographer and storyteller extraordinaire Brandon Stanton is the creator of the #1 New York Times bestselling book Humans of New York as well as the wildly popular Humans of New York blog. To create Little Humans he combined some of his favorite children's photos with a heartwarming ode to little humans everywhere.
Brandon Stanton started off just as a guy with a camera in New York. He started asking people their stories. They shared them. He shared them with the world. Humans of New York has become a global phenomenon and Stanton has become the most recognized documentary photographer of his time.
My favorite entries are always those of children. Those of the wide-eyed wonder, willing to say exactly what they think with no filter, willing to express themselves in no uncertain terms. Little Humans builds on that, combining Brandon’s stellar photography with a powerful message that little humans are just as big and important as everyone else.
Stanton exhorts kids to reach for the stars, to dream big, to be tough—but not so tough that you don’t need a friend or a hug or some love. Stanton captures the essence of New York with all its diversity. Shades of skin colors stand out vibrantly as Stanton crafts an ode to all children, everywhere.
Kids are an all-too-often overlooked part of society. Brandon puts them in center focus with Little Humans, a powerful reminder of the value of childhood and children.
