One day, photographer Brandon Stanton got the idea to establish some semblance of a photographic population census of his hometown. The idea had shortly a continuation in the form of a website and then a book.
People, when they learn about the purpose of the photos, gladly stop and pose to the master. Brandon makes everyday a new photo in a different area of the city. Brandon Stanton gathered in his collection more than four thousand pictures. On the website, you can see every place where he took a picture. The author acknowledges that most of all he likes to photograph children and elderly couples; first ones are full of energy and the second ones represent an ideal for most people.
