I don’t normally have one link to share for our routine weekend links post, but with all the crazy going on worldwide lately, I felt like there’s one that deserves a bit of showcasing.
Brandon is a young photographer who started a humble Facebook page simply by taking photos of New Yorkers and sharing their stories—the idea being that everyone has a story to tell, if only we stop to listen.
Now 9 million-plus followers strong, I think it’s the best thing on the Internet right now.
Brandon is currently on a 50-day trip in partnership with the United Nations, posting portraits and stories from around the world. And I agree with two frequent comments left by the page’s followers: that Brandon stands in solid consideration for a Pulitzer Prize for his work right now, and that the page should really be named HOPE: Humans of Planet Earth.
