His success is based on a body of provocative and compellingly intimate images of people from all over the world. Over the last 30 or so years, he has not swayed with the vagaries of artistic fashion but has retained his commitment to the power of photography to produce a space of exchange between subject, viewer and photographer. By staying true to himself, he has developed one of the most coherent and stimulating bodies of work in world photography today.
This photobook is a compilation of eight travel journals (artist books) created by Pam, beginning with Pam’s Karakoram (2006) and shifting back through the decades to his first journals created in 1970. The journals map through a wonderful mixture of texts, photographs, paintings and marks on paper his engagement and interactions with the cultures he has travelled through. The development of his journalistic process provides a platform for his own development as a photographer, writer and as an artist. This photobook won the Best Photography Book of the Year, International Category, PhotoEspana (2010).
