Humans of Planet Earth is a project aimed to regroup 100 photographers from 100 locations around the world, in an effort to capture 10000 portraits of people. The project was initiated by a New Zealand-American Brandon Van Slyke, in an effort to gain a perspective of the planet and its people, particularly if it contrasts from stereotypical prevailing media portrayals.[1] The initiative was inspired by the Humans of New York (HONY) blog, an attempt to document people from New York City.[2]

The portraits and stories are shared on a Facebook page, in addition to the main website. Each portrait comes with a story - oftentimes a quote, extracted from the conversation the photographer had with the subject. The project currently includes 89 photographers from over 60 locations around the world.[citation needed] Most photographers manage their own Humans of project for a local area, including Montreal, Austin, Texas, Indonesia and Milan.[citation needed]
