My name is Adam.
About a year ago, I got tired of too much technology. Tired of not talking to people face to face anymore. Tired of everything being a text message.
I just wanted to have a genuine conversation. I just wanted to get to know people.
So, I decided to go around the world, walk up to strangers and just ask for their photograph. Just to see what what would happen if I tried to have a conversation with everyone around me.
I am an introvert. It scared me everyday.
But it ended up changing my life, and many other lives that I was fortunate enough to meet along the way.
Countless conversations with strangers.
19 countries. 12 months.
Every person was a stranger seconds before the
But now, they’re a friend for life.
“Composition is striking and draws my attention.”
Matt Adams, National Geographic
“Adam is one of those you mention to anyone who thinks of making photography and storytelling a living. He is the rare example of someone with the combination of incredible talent, a desire to tell meaningful stories and the grit to create his own path to doing so.”

“It’s like Humans of New York… But in a global sense.”
‘He take’s a different viewpoint than anyone else I’ve ever seen. His work is simply beautiful, and there is great cohesion to it.’
The Artists Agent
“His vulnerable approach to speaking with people instantly breaks down walls and gives him the opportunity to take beautiful photographs of people in a way that no one else could. Seeing his photographs will brings a multitude of emotions and will always leave you desperately wanting to know more about the story behind them.”
“I have honestly never seen anyone able to capture what Adam captures in a photograph. When he takes a photograph of someone, they see something in it they’ve never seen before.”
Visual Artists Group
“Capturing a moment is the very essence of photography. The other fascinating characteristic of that medium is its impact on people. Adam approached strangers from around the world and asked to take their photograph… Having the result rely on the interaction between him and his subject. From that, we were able to see joy, sadness, shyness, tenderness, resolution, faith, confidence… many attitudes and emotions that he genuinely and brilliantly captured with his camera - different moments of life that speak to us and show us that we are all humans no matter where in the world we live.”
