One of my favorite portrait artists: Brandon Stanton

I don’t really have favorites of anything, but I usually have “top tens,” however, when I thought of this assignment, one of the first people I thought of was the creator of “Humans of New York.” I remember when his work first came out. It was simple but profound. It represents what I came to enjoy about photojournalism. When we were low on ideas for stories on deployment, our LPO would always say, “there’s 5,000 stories on board this ship… go find one!” If we pay attention, we realize everyone has more value than we tend to give most people.
