Based on the popular blog with the same name, Stanton’s sweeping photographic “census” of the Big Apple captures some four hundred New Yorkers going about the activities of their ordinary lives, creating an extraordinary interwoven tapestry of color, life and humanity in one of the world’s most uniquely iconic urban environments. “New York represents America for a lot of people,” says Stanton, who lives in an apartment in Brooklyn. “There are 8 million people in the city. People are so different here that [they] feel free to be…themselves.”
