MAX said: this is a visual narrative about two people in their first year of knowing each other and how that year of adventures created a relationship that lasted 45 years, created children and the grandchildren. It is also a testament to the centrality of Janno in my life. So yeah for me the book is a kind of quasi sacred statement of just how integral Janno was in my life as a collaborator, muse and benefactor.

 

Max Pam, (born Melbourne, 1949) is a contemporary Australian photographer. Pam’s work takes the viewer on compelling journeys around the globe, recording observations with an often surrealist intensity, matching the heightened sensory awareness of foreign travel. The work frequently implies an interior, psychic journey, corresponding with the physical journey of travel.
His work in Asian counties is well represented in publications as are his travels in Europe, Australia, and the Indian Ocean Rim cultures including India, Pakistan, Myanmar, Yemen, The Republic of Tanzania, Mauritius, Madagascar, the Cocos and Christmas Islands. The images leave the viewer, as Tim Winton said in Going East (Marval 1992), “grateful for having been taken so mysteriously by surprise and so far and sweetly abroad.”
