I have been following Humans of New York on Facebook for a few months. Photographer Brandon Stanton's story is as fascinating as those of the people he photographs. He had a short video segment explaining the project (link above) . It begins: "I moved to New York with two suitcases and a goal of taking ten thousand photos." He asks a few questions of people of all ages and ethnicities and backgrounds and includes their answers as captions to the magnificently full of personality photos in his book and on the website. I love the quotes that he gets from his subjects. The funny thing is I wasn't interested in portrait photography necessarily until I started looking at this artist's work.
