"I normally go into my conversations with a set of proven questions to ask, that I find will elicit a wide variety of anecdotes from people’s lives: happiest moment, saddest moment, things like that. But with people fleeing war, it is absolutely impossible to discuss anything beyond the present moment. Their circumstances are so overpowering, there is absolutely zero room in their minds for any other thoughts. The conversation immediately stalls, because any topic of conversation beyond their present despair seems grossly inappropriate. You realize that without physical security, no other layers of the human experience can exist."

—Brandon Stanton, Humans of New York photographer, who is currently on a 50 day trip with the United Nations that will cover 10 countries and circumnavigate the globe

Stanton, known for his blog Humans of New York is now blogging from Iraq, where the militant group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is seizing territory and targeting religious minorities. Learn more about the conflict at Vox.

Said Stanton, who set off on August 7, “The point of the trip is not to ‘say’ anything about the world. But rather to visit some faraway places, and listen to as many people as possible.” Stanton is also raising awareness for the Millennium Development Goals (pictured above, learn more here), eight goals that all UN Member States have agreed to try to achieve by 2015.

I look forward to following Stanton as he captures and brings attention to human stories from around the world!

Humans of New York Captures Street-Style Celebrity Portraits at the Met Gala

Since 1971, the Met Gala has been the fashion industry’s premier annual red carpet event. Some of the biggest names in arts, fashion, and entertainment flock to the exclusive gathering that raises money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.

Photographer Brandon Stanton, who has become quite well known for his intimate portraits of New Yorkers on Humans of New York, was invited by Vogue to document the glitzy gathering with his trademark, street-portrait style.

Accustomed to capturing the unique personalities of ordinary people going about their everyday lives, Stanton took the same approach to his celebrity portraits.

“I’m a believer in the ordinary person, that the ordinary person is just as important and has an equally unique perspective on the world as someone who is famous or perhaps more privileged,” he tells Vogue.

We’ve all heard about Humans Of New York, check out Humans of Africa!

If we could look into each other’s hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other more gently, with more love, tolerance and care.

As an avid supporter of Toms’s “One for One" campaign (with every pair of eyewear purchased, the brand gives the gift of sight to a person in need), I, of course, had to see the newest Toms sunglasses while I was at Lollapalooza this year. My go-to shades are the black Lobambas, but the latest styles might find a home in my sunglass rotation come fall. 
From top: Charlie Rae Rose Crystal Gold ($139)
