Humans of New York, a popular blog that documents the stories and experiences of ordinary people in street portraits now includes photos and stories from Pakistan.
Blog creator Brandon Stanton announced that Pakistan would be one of two countries that he would travel to this summer. Initially Stanton stated he would be visiting in August, but it appears that he has already come and gone!
During recent travels, Stanton visited Hunza, Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. His beautiful imagery and heart-warming stories are available for all to view at the website, Humans of New York as well at this Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/humansofnewyork
Our favourite gem from the many stories Stanton collected comes from a young girl living in the Hunza Valley:
"I want to be a chef."
"What's the best part about being a chef?"
"You can make your own dessert."
