"An Evening with Brandon Stranton," the artist behind the photography blog, Humans of New York (HONY), will be hosted on the University of Southern California campus on Sunday, March 31 at 8:00 p.m. There will be an exhibition of his photographs, quotes and anecdotes in the Campus Center Ballroom.

Stranton set out with the goal of photographing 10,000 of New York’s diverse inhabitants and plotting them on a map. As his journey unfolded, however, he also collected quotes and short stories that began to shape his blog. This combination of photographs and stories has led to the creation of a vibrant blog that has captured the attention of millions. 

Now, with more than 3.6 million followers, HONY has not only becomean Internet sensation, but a #1 New York Times bestseller as well!

HONY gives viewers a look at the lives of everyday New Yorkers, and it has inspired others to create similar blogs, including the college version, Humans of USC.

Stanton’s visit on the 31st will kick off USC’s 1st Annual "Arts Week."

Also, a book signing will occur after the event. HONY books will be available for purchase, but it is suggested that students purchase their book prior to the event.
