ფოტოგრაფი, რომელიც ყველა ადამიანს ლამაზად და საინტერესოდ ხედავს

2010 წლის ნოემბერში სოციალურ ქსელში გამოჩნდა ფოტოპროექტი “ადამიანების ნიუ-იორკიდან” ( Humans Of New York ), რომელმაც უმალვე მიიქცია საზოგადოების ყურადღება. ამ მომენტისთვის მის გვერდს მარტო “ფეისბუქის” საშუალებით 3 მილიონზე მეტი მომხმარებელი ადევნებს თვალს. იდეის ავტორი და სულის ჩამდგმელი ბრენდონ სტენტონია, ამერიკელი ფოტოგრაფი ყველანაირი ფოტოგრაფიული განათლების გარეშე. 

ჯორჯიის უნივერსტეტის ისტორიის ფაკულტეტის დამთავრების შემდეგ ის სამეწარმეო საქმიანობას ეწეოდა ფულით, რომელიც ბარაკ ობამას გამარჯვებაზე ფსონის დადებით მოიგო.

ადამიანები, რომელთა პორტრეტებსაც 29 წლის ფოტოგრაფი ნიუ-იორკის ქუჩებში იღებს, თითქოს არაფრით გამორჩეული, რიგითი ნიუ-იორკელები არიან. ბრენდონის მიერ გადაღებული ფოტო და პატარა ისტორია, რომელიც ამ ფოტოზე გამოსახულ ადამიანის შესახებაა, ყოველთვის იწვევს საზოგადოების დიდ მოწონებას და ხვდები, რომ სწორედ ეს ადამიანები არიან სამყაროში ყველაზე ლამაზები და საინტერესოები.

6 ათასზე მეტი პორტრეტი და ამდენივე მინი ისტორია, რომელიც ნიუ-იორკის ქუჩებში შემთხვევით შეხვედრილი გამვლელების შესახებ მოგვითხრობს, კვლავ გრძელდება და უფრო და უფრო საინტერესო ხდება.  New York Times-მა გამოსცა წიგნი, რომელიც ბრენდონის 400 ფერადი ფოტოისტორიისგან შედგება და ბესთსელერად იქცა. მისი შეძენა amazon.com-ის საშუალებითაცაა შესაძლებელი.

ბრენდონის იდეას ცხადია, მალევე გამოუჩნდნენ მიმდევრები სხვადასხვა ქვეყნიდან. ასე შეიქმნა  მსოფლიოს სხვადასხვა ქვეყანასა და ქალაქში მსგავსი ფოტოპროექტები. მაგ:  Humans Of TehranHumans Of IndiaHumans Of Paris და თქვენ წარმოიდგინეთ, Humans of Georgia-ც კი.

"My wife left me and went to Georgia." "Why’d she leave you?" "We’d just grown apart. I’d recommend getting married as late as you can. We got married because we had a baby. Then we both changed a lot, because both of us still had a lot of growing left to do. You should give yourself plenty of time to grow before getting married."

"When I was 19, my girlfriend and I were going to study in Paris. Our boyfriends came to the docks to see us off. Right as we were getting on the ship, my friend’s boyfriend said to her: ‘If you go, I won’t wait for you.’ So she turned around and decided to stay. My fiance saw this and told me: ‘I won’t wait for you either.’ I said: ‘Don’t!’”

"I’ve got a whole stack of books in my cart. Most of them are advance copies. I know a place where they get thrown out." “How many books have you read?” “Thousands.” “So why are you homeless?” “I’ve tried to work a job a bunch of times. But then I get sad, and then I get high, and things fall apart.”

"I’m a philosophy professor." "If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?" "Never make an exception of yourself." "What does that mean?" "People like to make exceptions of themselves. They hold other people to moral codes that they aren’t willing to follow themselves. For example, people tend to think that if they tell a lie, it’s because it was absolutely necessary. But if someone else tells a lie, it means they’re dishonest. So never make an exception of yourself. If you’re a thief, don’t complain about being robbed.”

He joined the Navy for ten years, and when he came home, I happened to be working in the same retirement home that his grandmother was in. We met in the lobby. He tried to tell a joke about having been all around the world while I stayed at home, but it backfired and made me cry."
