Humans of NY was the first of its kind when it first launched. Brandon Stanton would photograph random people in NY and tell their story in the photo caption. It’s one of the rare Instagram accounts where the captions are more powerful than the photos. Followers get an inside look into who individual people are. People they may have passed on the street without a second glance. This Instagram account also does features in different parts of the world like Cairo to give people an inside look into other cultures.The best thing about Human of NY is that it helps humanize the people in photos and get an inside look into people’s lives.
