Prolific interviewer, storyteller and possibly the most curious man in the world Brandon Stanton will make his first-ever appearance in Sydney in February.

Stanton is the creator of the Humans of New York phenomenon and he'll appear at Sydney Opera House to reveal behind-the-scenes stories of his work. You'll hear about how he started out with virtually no journalistic or camera expertise, how he produces compelling stories by talking to strangers and he'll share a number of enlightening and unusual moments in his career.

Humans of New York began after Stanton lost his job and decided to dedicate time to sharing the stories of others. Since these humble beginnings in 2010, he's released a book, travelled the world, raised millions for people in need and even found time to interview Barack Obama. To date, the project has gained over 20 million followers on social media.

Stanton will enter the city with a bang, with just one session planned at the Opera House. But who knows, maybe you'll run into him on the streets of Sydney?
