Popular photo blog Humans of New York (HONY) will be coming to Pakistan in August, Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind the blog announced in a Facebook post.

"Continuing in the tradition of last summer, I’m going to be travelling during the month of August and posting stories from overseas. Only this time I’ll be visiting two countries instead of trying to span the world, because that was exhausting, and it also caused my poor senile dog to forget my existence. The first stop is Pakistan. Hope you enjoy," Stanton said.

HONY, which shares pictures and stories of ordinary people, has a huge fan following in Pakistan as well as the rest of the world with over 14.2 million followers on Facebook and over 3.5 million followers on Instagram.

Previously, Stanton visited India during a 50-day world tour. In 2014, he promised to visit Pakistan and said, "Pakistan was near the top of my list of places I wanted to go-- but the visa didn't come through in time."

He had added, "Just know that I have my heart set on a future visit."

Stanton is known for strolling the streets of New York, taking people’s pictures and interviewing them about their lives.


Chachoo | 6 years ago | Reply Kindly give him full security service. This is a great opportunity but at the same time many enemies could harm him to ruin our reputation. RAW and Afghan intelligence agency have sabotage units that are aimed at the maiming the reputation of their neighbors. So beware and give him as much security on his visit as possible.
