This is the story of a guy called Brandon Stanton. He moved to New York in 2010 with two suitcases and a goal of taking 10,000 photos. The video is his story of the struggle he had in the early days to get anyones attention. He took hundred, if not thousands of photos every day with no real focus or direction. That is until one day he created a page on Facebook called Humans Of New York.
He added a photo of a person in New York with a caption about their life and magically he got a few followers. He then added more and more followers came. After a while the page blew up and he now has in excess of 2 million followers. People seem to love to see these faces of random strangers with whom they have no relationship. They like to see the stories behind the strangers they walk past every day.
I hope you enjoy the video because it really left me feeling inspired.
