‘Humans of New York’ Author Shoots Photos at The Met Gala

honyBrandon Stanton, creator of the “Humans of New York” photo project and author of the New York Times bestselling book, was invited to take pictures at The Met Gala by Vogue magazine.

During the glitzy event, Stanton captured the portraits of How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, and nine-time Grammy winner John Legend. Vogue allowed Stanton to post some of his favorite pieces on the HONY blog.

Stanton shared the photo of Cranston and his wife along with a touching quote this morning on Facebook; the post has drawn more than 310,000 “likes” and over 6,100 comments. In an interview with Mashable, Stanton revealed that his “goal was to keep my interviews the same as they’d be on the street, even though everyone was carrying cocktails and wearing tuxedos.” What do you think?
