Brandon Stanton creator go the photo blog "Humans of New York," in New York, March 22, 2016. Stanton has worked hard to filter politics and moral judgments out of his posts, intent on maintaining objectivity as he captures his subjects in words and on film, letting them speak for themselves. That changed last week when Stanton, 32, shed his sedulously cultivated neutrality to take on Donald Trump, excoriating the Republican presidential candidate in a 300-word Facebook post presented as an open letter to Trump.
