Before Humans of New York, there was The Corners Project: a visual celebration of the amazing energy and diversity of the people that walk the streets of New York as captured in portraits of strangers in 5 corners of Manhattan.
"3 years, 5 corners, 100's of candid photographs of strangers and passers-by – a brilliant portrait of NYC"
"one of the 100 most innovative, rule-breaking, model changing ideas to come out of the Big Apple"
"From hipsters to homeboys, executives to entertainers, the project spans the entire social spectrum, with all its vibrant richness and charming quirk. Often presented in pairs, the portraits bespeak a unique blend of diversity and solidarity, the unmistakable we’re-in-this-together-ness of New York."

"Fotoğrafçı Friko Starc New York’un gerçek yüzlerini ortaya çıkarmak için seçtiği 5 farklı köşe de günlerce oturup gelen geçen insanların fotoğraflarını çekmiş. Haliyle ortaya gerçekten çarpıcı bir koleksiyon çıkmış."
"I cannot think of a word that could describe how much I enjoyed your "The Corners Project"
