Your Thing?

Every object tells a story

Hi, I’m Adam. I’m based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and I am a sucker for beautiful images, great stories, and hot coffee.

Material possessions get a bad reputation. Everywhere you look, people are telling you to get rid of absolutely everything that you don’t need, a la Maria Kondo’s “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying.” While I do believe minimalist living has value to one extent or another, there will always be that one item that you just can’t get rid of. These items tell a story. They gives a glimpse into our lives.


The goal of this project is to simply give a little insight to what motivates people, what means something to people, and get a glimpse into an aspect of their lives – whether it’s happy, sad, funny, or strange.


I have always been interested in things. Old things in particular. I can’t help but think about the history attached to something that is decades old. I once found a penny from 1926. It sat on my desk for years. I would just look at it and think about what it could have possibly seen.


Throughout my 20’s I’ve become fascinated with storytelling by way of being an absolute podcast junkie. While I do enjoy broad, arching storylines with a distinct beginning, middle, and end, it’s the slice of life stories – the every man – that holds my attention. It vividly illustrates that everyone, and everything, has a story.


Put that all together along with a love for photography, and I’d say that Most Prized Possession is a project perfectly tailored for me.


That being said, this project can’t happen without people like you. If you’d like to get involved, click the button below to get started.
