Pam left Australia at 20, after accepting a job as a photographer assisting an astrophysicist. Together, the pair drove a Volkswagen from Calcutta to London. This adventure proved inspirational, and travel has remained a crucial and continuous link to his creative and personal development.

“ Each photograph is shaped by incidents experienced as a traveller. His photographs extend upon the tradition of the gazetteer; each photograph a record of an experience, a personal account of an encounter somewhere in the world. ” says Gary Dufour about his work.

Pam’s work takes the viewer on compelling journeys around the globe, recording observations with an often surrealist intensity.

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.

A well-travelled photography master

As other fine art photographers, Pam’s work has been exhibited around the world in prestigeous galleries like the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and the Sogo Nara Museum of Art, Nara, to name a few. He was also the subject of a major exhibition at the Comptoir de la Photographie, Paris in 1990, which covered the work of three decades.

He has published several highly acclaimed photographic monographs and 'carnets de voyage', including Going East: Twenty Years of Asian Photography (1992), Max Pam (1999), Ethiopia (1999) and Indian Ocean Journals (2000).

Pam currently teaches at Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia.
