These are photographs from the now famous collection Humans of New York. Photographer Brandon Staunton has been navigating the city with his camera and has taken 50,000 portraits and written over 50 stories. We feature a few portraits that show children, men and women speaking of relationships, their dislocation, of sexual health, of sexuality, of ambitions and of expectations which act as excellent examples of how an urban space allows people to imagine their lives as they navigate around it everyday.
