“For the past 30 years I have consistently returned to fieldwork in Asia as a source of inspiration for my life. The visual production that resulted in these diverse journeys of self discovery in Asia are an autobiographical narrative. As a photographer I am a storyteller and it is the visual language of my story that has formed the basis of a trilogy of work on Asia in the form of 3 books: Going East, Indian Ocean Journals and Atlas Monographs.” –Max Pam
