Unless you’ve miraculously shunned all forms of social media over the last decade, there’s a strong possibility you’ve spotted the heart-warming stories and photos that make up Humans of New York – a brilliant project by street photographer Brandon Stanton that's been going since 2010. It inspired London photographer Cathy Teesdale to start her own version via Facebook two years later and voila – Humans of Greater London was born. She's now put together her favourite snaps from her page in a brand spankin' new book.
'Humans of London' is a collection of over 250 snaps of people from all walks of life. In typical HONY fashion, photos are accompanied with short stories about everything from dressing as a tomboy to living as a refugee in the capital. Here are a few more of our favourites.
You can find more stories from the capital's characters on Cathy's Facebook page or Tumblr – or grab a copy of 'Humans of London' by Cathy Teesdale is out now by LOM Art.
