As the photo series Humans of New York has grown in popularity, Stacey Baker has taken a different approach to documenting the city and its diverse population. In a photo series that she calls Citi Legs, Barker has amassed more than 78,000 Instagram followers as she documents the women’s legs of her city.
Barker, who is also a photo editor at the New York Times Magazine, will be releasing a hardcover book called New York Legs that will include a selection of her waist-down photos of strangers posed in front of a wall. Barker said in an interview, “I get the most likes on the sexiest pictures, the sexiest legs. I don’t personally think that those are the most interesting pictures — in fact, I think the pictures of legs that have more curves are far more interesting as pictures.”
