Meet Sandy

Award winning photographer, Sandy Adams, is best known for her photographs of historical sites from unique perspectives.  The majority of her work comprises photographs, taken during many cross-country road trips, which reveal the lesser known history and stories of our country.

Sandy born and raised in West Tennessee, spent 16 years living in Houston before relocating back to her native state in late 2020.  She received her B.A. in International Relations – Middle East and Northern Africa from Memphis State University and her Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Memphis.  She has been traveling since she was born, both in the United States and abroad.

“I have been obsessed with history and the entire world since I first saw Yul Brynner as Ramesses II in “The Ten Commandments”.”

Sandy in her own words…

Growing up in the south, the best part of the summer was the late nights sitting outside on the front porch listening to my mom and my aunts. They were always laughing and telling us kids stories about their childhood. Those nights were some of the best moments of my life when times were really simple and the only thing to focus on was catching fireflies at dusk.

My mom instilled in me the fierce love of travel, specifically road trips, literally from the time I was in her womb. That love of the open road, incredible views of this great country and other countries, has been a lifelong journey for me. The roads less traveled are always the most interesting and what you learn along the way changes who you are and inspires you for tomorrow.
