New York Style: Little Humans by Brandon Stanton
LITTLE HUMANS CAN DO BIG THINGS.
SURE, SOMETIMES THEY FALL.
BUT THEY GET RIGHT BACK UP.
A variety of young humans of New York, preschoolers all, show off their style. Their outfits are colorful, and so are their surroundings, in the charming photos by Brandon Stanton in his companion book to his best-selling photo-essay, Humans of New York. Like its adult version, Stanton's street photography captures the many personalities, looks, and activities of big-city tots, sometimes falling off bikes and sometimes showing how tough they can be, even if they sometimes cry.
Toddlers dressed as Batman, toeing up in tutus, toting guitars, and sporting rock star facepaint to strut their stuff vie with others hammering with Dad, playing ball, hugging Mom, or sledding in the snow, in activities that all small children share. For rural or suburban kids, Brandon Stanton's spinoff for preschoolers, Little Humans (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2014) provides a taste of big city living and playing, dressing up, and showing off what kids can do.
