Humans of New York on Instagram

I follow Humans of New York on Instagram. HONY is one guy, walking around New York, photographing and interviewing people. I really like following him on Instagram because I get one image and a bit of an interview in my feed...I don't know, it just works perfect. Sometimes, I screencap the quotes because they resonate with me in some way. Here are some I've collected:


  1. I love that guy. I don't know why I'm not already following him on Instagram because I've spent hours looking at his site. He also has a book, which I got for my photographer as a thank you gift, but then returned it after our whole falling out lol.

  2. Cannot stop reading that site now that I found it from you, amazing. Excellent photos and quotes. Love this one:

    "If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
    "When a wave comes, go deep."
    "I think I’m going to need an explanation for that one."
    "There’s three things you can do when life sends a wave at you. You can run from it, but then it’s going to catch up and knock you down. You can also fall back on your ego and try to stand your ground, but then it’s still going to clobber you. Or you can use it as an opportunity to go deep, and transform yourself to match the circumstances. And that’s how you get through the wave.”

    1. So true! I knew exactly what he meant!

      I'm so glad I turned you on to an awesome site/photographer/group of people!
