“Between the ages of 18 and 35 I spent any money and time that I managed to pull together on plane tickets to somewhere far-flung. Now I’ve got a young family that keeps me from straying very far, so I’m living vicariously through old shots. Some of these are from a couple months I spent in India a few years ago, some from a recent hiking trip closer to home, and some that may not have been while I was technically traveling, but that contain the spirit of travel.”

Editor’s comment: The longing for both travel and escape comes through here loud and clear. Adam creates a fascinating juxtaposition of the idea being trapped and confined with the longing to be free, the muted palette adding to that sense of nostalgic longing.

Editor’s comment: Here the cascades of color are eye-catching – almost like water under a slow shutter speed. The busyness of the frame is mesmerizing, but the compositional placement of the women helps to ground it, and the complimentary colors give it a punch. It’s a fascinating view into the intricate work of these ladies mending fishing nets in Vietnam.

“These images were taken from my 5 year photography work covering over 100 major cities across 75 countries, where I focused on the diversity and connections found in daily life across all regions and cultures, with images that explore the layers of life within major cities.”

Editor’s comment: The color in this image is a strong unifying factor, bringing together the youth in the foreground, man in the kiosk, and building in the background in a playful composition. The cherry on top is the boy himself and his piercing gaze.
