"In the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton began an ambitious project--to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City. The photos he took and the accompanying interviews became the blog Humans of New York. His audience steadily grew from a few hundred followers to, at present count, over twelve million. In 2013, his book Humans of New York, based on that blog, was published and immediately catapulted to the top of the NY Times Bestseller List where it has appeared for over forty-five weeks. Now, Brandon is back with the Humans of New York book that his loyal followers have been waiting for: Humans of New York: Stories. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of New York, the dialogue he's had with them has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing and moving as the photos themselves. Humans of New York: Stories presents a whole new group of people in stunning photographs, with a rich design and, most importantly, longer stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candor. Let Brandon Stanton and the Humans of New York he's photographed astonish you all over again next fall"--… (mer)

Lese immer wieder darin, mit großem Gewinn. So viele Menschen, so viele Ansichten, Hoffnungen und Freuden.

Man muss einfach nur aufblättern und die Portraits betrachten, um unmittelbar zu verstehen, welch tiefe menschliche Mitfühl-Qualität in diesen Aufnahmen steckt. Und welche radikale Ehrlichkeit. Oft wundert mich, dass die Abgebildeten das OK zur Veröffentlichung gegeben haben.

Wir sehen auf Seite 10 einen eher schüchtern wirkenden jungen Mann, von der Seite fotografiert, die linke Hand unter dem Kinn angesetzt, den ganzen Kopf haltend, mit folgender Aussage: (siehe Vorschau)

„Ich hatte mein ganzes Leben lang ein arrogantes Auftreten und lerne gerade, dass ich das ändern muss, wenn ich erfolgreich sein will. Ich habe begriffen, dass es keine Rolle spielt, wie schlau du bist, wenn keiner mit dir zusammenarbeiten will.“

Glück in New York, das ist ein wenig Sonne auf der Parkbank und die Hoffnung eines Draußen-Lebenden: „ Ich warte einfach nur auf den Sommer.“

Von ganz knappen textlichen Aussagen bis zu längeren Ausführungen, neben emotional nahe gehenden Portraitaufnahmen sind die Texte ein echter Genuss, kurze Romane, überraschende Statements und im Takt mit dem Bild oft herzzerreißend berührend.

Man möchte eigentlich nur eine Geschichte lesen bzw. betrachten, aber taucht dann doch tiefer ein, blättert vor, zurück, genießt und erkennt Menschen wie Du und ich. Die Sorgen und Glücksgefühle sind überall auf der Welt gleich.

Mit der Vorschau auf dieses Buch sind eine Reihe von Aufnahmen/Texten einsehbar, die das wirklich gelungenen Konzept dieses Buches verdeutlichen, nachzuschlagen auch im Netz mit dem gleichnamigen Titel. Diese Seite gehört zu meine regelmäßigen "Abtauch-Plätzen", um den allzuschnell drehenden Informationen und Nachrichten zu entgehen bzw. den Blick für das Wesentliche wieder frei zu bekommen.

Needs to be a shorter book or read in smaller doses. It gets to the point where each individual story gets lost in the quantities and the poignancy of each story is diluted. ( )

Aki ismeri a blogot/Facebook oldalt, annak nem is kell ajánlgatni. Igaz, a híresen elfogadó HONY közösség támogatása, szinte csupa pozitív hozzászólása nincs benne, de a fantasztikus portrék, a pár szóba, mondatba sűrített életek igen. (A következő könyv HONY Stories and Top Comments lesz, fogadok.)

A szerkesztés is mesteri, ahogy szemben lévő oldalakon találkozhatunk a rendőrségre megjegyzést tevő fiatalokkal és egy rendőrrel, az anyáskodó barátnőkre panaszkodó férfival és egy nővel, akit az zavart, hogy a kapcsolatában már a partnere anyjának érezte magát. Némelyik tekintet egészen beszippantja az embert. Máshol a képaláírás üt akkorát, hogy képtelenség továbblapozni.

Őszintén ajánlom azoknak is, akik nem ismerik a blogot, és azoknak is, akik igen. Hiába ismerjük már a történetek jó részét, jó újraolvasni őket. Sok újjal is találkoztam, pedig már néhány éve követem az oldalt. Több száz világba pillanthatunk be. Ráadásul most végre lehet anélkül élvezni a HONY posztokat, hogy Facebook- vagy telefonfüggőnek bélyegeznék az embert.

------------------------------------------------

Yes, I pre-ordered this one, too! (Just like the new Shopaholic novel.) I had to wait for the delivery though, since this is a book book.

It is a much loved hard copy, which is a strange experience for me, as I read most books on kindle these days. It is easier that way with sleeping kids around. I don’t need both hands and proper lighting for it. Humans of New York is a blog I follow on Facebook mainly and now I can enjoy it without looking like a Facebook-/smartphone-addict. Yay!

Wow, how this book can be so much more than the blog or the facebook page!

What power lies in editing! (Look at pages 198-199!) I just love how the photos are placed next to each other. A group of youngsters saying something about the police on one page, a policeman on the opposite page. A man complaining about women starting to act like his mother, facing a woman telling how she felt like a nagging mother with her partner, on the next page. Some statements that make you raise your eyebrows, and the last person on the page telling it plainly: I have mental illnesses.

Some eyes I found hard to wrench myself away from. The man on page 209 gripped me with the pure pain and loneliness screaming from his eyes. His mouth shut. Such a powerful gaze. His story only supporting it. It’s like he is trapped in that body, silently screaming for help.

Then there are the ones that make you smile. My favourite rebel on pages 130-131: “Sometimes I stay up late without asking.”. You have to see that face, too! I remembered him from the Facebook page. And my all-time favourite on pages 310-311: that’s what I call imagination – and innovation!

I was really surprised to see how well I remembered some of these faces and their stories. Their lives touched me so deeply in just a few words that I look at a face and remember their lines. We are all in this together, right? “No man is an island” (John Donne).

It was great to see Vidal again, remembering and re-reading his story, seeing his photo with the President. So many of the stories inspire a wave of generosity from the HONY community, I sometimes wonder whether it will reach its limits one day.

Sometimes I wanted to comment on the photo, other times I wanted to see what others have commented. Out of curiosity or for some advice if the caption hit close to home. The community is such a vital part of the HONY experience, the next book will probably be HONY: Stories and top comments. Or HONY Fractions (you know what I’m talking about).

These days, Brandon is sharing the stories of Syrian families cleared for resettlement in the United States. When he goes global, commenters like to call it HOPE – Humans of Planet Earth. Indeed, he teaches us about the people he meets wherever he goes. He crushes our prejudices and teaches us to be accepting, kind and nonjudgmental. As Lori Duron of Raising my Rainbow said so many times, “to have an open heart and an open mind”. Lori’s was another blog-turned-book I read this year and I felt I shouldn’t have bought it. It was a bit wearing to read as I constantly felt I read those stories before and was just hoping to finish the book as soon as possible. Don’t get me wrong, I love that blog but I didn’t enjoy the book. However, with Humans of New York – Stories, it was just the opposite. It was nice to recognize so many of the stories and really enjoyable to re-read them. Great, sometimes funny, other times heavy stories, whole lives, sometimes in a single sentence. It is intense like Hemingway. Many mini-Hemingways. You have to stop after about ten pages, to give yourself time to process it. (Have you heard there was an app called Hemingway? It promises to make your writing bold and clear. I should test it in another post.)

Brandon Stanton must have a special gift for gaining the trust of strangers. He is exceptionally sensitive to other people’s lives and presents us with this bunch of case studies without ever judging anybody. (Maybe that is his secret.) And when I say ‘us’, I mean more than 16 million Facebook followers. Yes, really. ( )
