West Texas A&M University will welcome Brandon Stanton tonight, as part of its distinguished lecture series.

Stanton is known as the founder of the "Humans of New York" photoblog, which tells the stories of everyday New Yorkers, and has now expanded into a worldwide phenomenon. Stanton has traveled the globe, telling the stories of everyday citizens.

In a phone interview last week, Stanton said that he isn't interested in the opinions of his subjects, political or otherwise, but rather the core humanity beneath those opinions.

Stanton started Humans of New York in 2010, and they now boast over 20 million social media followers.

The event will be held on Tuesday night at 7 p.m., on the West Texas A&M University campus, at the First United Bank Center. The event is free and open to the public.
