Brandon Stanton is a photographer that runs a blog called Humans of New York (HONY). I've been following his work for a little while and I love the way he marries stunning, often breathtakingly beautiful, photographs with insightful and humbling captions. Check out his website
YouTube celebrity Michael Stevens and his team run a series of channels under the name of Vsauce.
