You may already be familiar with Brandon Stanton, the talented photographer behind the popular photo blog Humans of New York.
He’s become known for roaming the streets of New York, taking people’s portraits and interviewing them about their lives. His ability to successfully draw out touching stories from strangers on the street is beyond impressive.
The team at Careertopia has been fans for a while now, and I personally did a little happy dance the day my pre-ordered copies of his book arrived.
Our fave posts on the blog? Those where people share their stories about career choice and communication at work. Here are a few I’ve snagged along the way.
If you’d like to hear Brandon’s view on what it takes to discover the work you were meant to do, check out his “30 Under 30” interview at Time.com.
To learn how he gets his subjects to open up and share the most intimate of stories, watch his presentation to University College Dublin from earlier this year.
And if you decide to check out his blog or Facebook page, please note that he’s currently posting portraits depicting life near dangerous areas & war zones like Jordan, Iraq, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. He’s on a 50-day United Nations-sponsored tour – you can read more about that unique opportunity here.
