This new Max Pam book offers in four chapters: Collage v Bi-fold, Old World v New World, Object v Artefact and Islam v Asia, a completely new body of work from field trips covering the four corners of the planet over the past decade. By enfolding unseen work from the past with new production we are offered a whole new interpretation of why this photographer remains one of the most authentically original and gifted photographers at work in the world today.He has used a variety of media and technology – plastic cameras, saturated and overexposed colours, digital prints, colour and black & white, photocopying and apparent accidents. In the words of photo critic Robert Cook, “He has used his knowledge of what it means to take a good picture to give him the latitude to take risks.… Max continually encourages the viewer to interpret objects as revelatory fragments. Erotic, arch and ironic, Supertourist takes the viewer on a journey through related arenas of travel, sex, desire and identity.”
