Since his friend's passing at age seventeen, Tom Turcich has had no doubt about his purpose in life - to walk around the world. After eight years of saving and planning, he left his home in New Jersey to embark on a seven-year trek across six continents.

He’s since walked 28,000 miles across 38 countries. He walks in order to be immersed in unknown places, discover adventure and understand the world. Before the walk, he never gave a thought to photography, but his passion for photography bloomed out of his desire to share the world. He is the tenth person to walk around the world and the first to do it with a dog.
