Andy Adams is an independent producer who blends digital communication, online audience engagement, and web-based collaboration to promote creative culture on and offline.

Finding his Helga book in mid-80s influenced me for art school. Not an artist now but he helped open my eyes to a great part of the world I might have missed.
