Brandon Stanton, the creator of the “Humans of New York” (HONY) blog, has been working on a new book called Little Humans.
Little Humans exclusively focuses on children that Stanton has photographed and interviewed while wandering around New York City. Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers will release the book on October 07, 2014.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Stanton (pictured, via) talks about his process for photographing kids: “I never even make eye contact with the child until I’ve asked the parent’s permission. But once I’ve gotten the go ahead, I sit on the ground and try to be as playful as possible. I think it’s important to try to get on a kid’s level when taking their photo.”
Stanton’s first book, named after his beloved Tumblr, has become a #1 New York Times bestseller. During an interview with OnlineAnthens.com, Stanton revealed that he has another adult book in-the-works. The untitled project “will focus more on storytelling” and be published sometime in 2015.
