Brandon Stanton, better known as the photographer behind the photo series Humans of New York (HONY), is in Manila and he wants to get up close and personal with the pvblic.
He tells 17 million of his Facebook followers that he rented out the University of the Philippines’ Cine Adarna on February 3 and he’ll be doing a presentation on the history of HONY at 9 am and 11 am for FREE for the first 800 attendees for each show.
Back in January, he asked the pvblic if an interpreter could accompany him during his Manila trip:
“Main qualities needed: English proficiency, lots of energy (we work long days), and an outgoing and friendly personality,” he wrote in the post.
“If you know a special person who is doing amazing work and whose story needs to be told, let me know about them!” Stanton added.
HONY started back in 2010 featuring all sorts of people in over 20 countries. One particular post that earned a lot of love from the Philippines was about this Filipino guy who professed his love for a woman.
Some stories were published in bestselling books “Humans of New York” and “Humans of New York: Stories.”
