In 2004, Frank Warren started an art project called PostSecret. He asked strangers to mail their secrets they'd never shared with anyone to his house. The game plan was to put the few postcards he received into an art exhibit… but he just kept receiving more and more. Frank started a lo-fi blog where he shared a handful of secrets once a week. Now, PostSecret is the largest advertisement-free blog in the world and he’s received more than a million postcards from strangers.

In 2015 when protests broke out in Baltimore in response to the death of Freddie Gray, photographer and activist Devin Allen was one of the first photographers on the scene to share his photos with the world.

His photos were quickly shared by celebrities like Rihanna and Beyonce and one of his most iconic photos landed on the cover of TIME magazine. Since then, it’s been a crazy year for him. Under Armour hired him to tour with Steph Curry around Asia shooting photos, Pope Francis was gifted a book that included some of his work, and he had some of his photographs shown at the Smithsonian.

And now over a year after his rise to fame, Devin is helping change his community and the way it’s perceived for good.

You’ve almost certainly seen Dallas Clayton’s fun and positive Instagram photos or at the least, some Instagram photos inspired by him. When he’s not busy writing books (for children of all ages), touring the world, painting on buildings, or climbing trees, he is generally trying find happiness and share it with others. He’s been called the Dr. Seuss of the internet generation, Justin Timberlake is a big fan, and I think you’re really going to love this quirky and unconventional conversation.
