Humans of the World.

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

French designer Adrien Colombie plans to travel the world this summer to conduct what he calls "an artistic survey of Earth's inhabitants." For each day of his yearlong trip, he'll interview a stranger, collecting stories, signatures, and fingerprints - when he's done, he'll share fifty of his favorites in a book titled Humans of the World. Love this idea, and can't wait to see the final result. 


Track Adrien's journey on Facebook, here. Learn more at Indiegogo.

-A beloved Sri Lankan kitchen souvenir.

Hi everyone! Thank you for all your comments, it's very encouraging! You can follow the project right there https://www.facebook.com/HOTW2014 and also on the indiegogo page ;) http://igg.me/at/HOTW/x/6318252

See you soon!

I love that he asks people for their fingerprints, and I can't believe he's not sharing all his interviews. I imagine it will be hard to narrow so many undoubtedly interesting encounters to 50.

And, I'm so curious about that string hopper mold. I need to see it in action!
