Adam was in an incredibly dark place in life when, one day, he decided to make a radical change. He felt unable to disengage with technology and that he was lacking human interaction he could call valuable, so he decided to embark on a journey that would take him all over the world. With his camera and without his cell phone, Adam traveled to 19 countries in 12 months, taking pictures of strangers and creating beautifully authentic relationships with the people he met along the way. This story is so inspiring, and a true testament to the healing power of human connection.

Adam has written a book about his experience titled "The World I See," which is coming out next month and can be pre-ordered here. Check out his website for more.
