Stanton was not a professional photographer but used his skill of connecting to engage with others, bring to life their stories and capture a wider vision of the essence of human nature. The stories go out daily via Facebook and Twitter, inspiring other individuals to undertake street photography and commentary in their cities around the world. In the video, Stanton describes his motivation and values that enable him to operate creatively, transparently, ethically and raise funds to support the people of New York.
