Supertourist is a new interpretation by Max Pam of the large body of work accumulated within the last 10 years during his travels in all parts of the globe.
The artist sort-of "traveled" within this large archive to conceive this book, a complete rethinking of his work. We do indeed recognise Max Pam's eye and feel, with lively, colourful, witty, funny and sometimes unsettling images.
The photographs, grouped in 5 sections, are introduced by texts from the artist, where he reflects over his work and the way he sees the world.
This book is also a beautiful piece of work : a hard slipcase and a very elegant satin-like cover, printing quality and design of the highest standards..
The book also features a tipped-in Kodak Print inserted on the flyleaf.
PLEASE NOTE : The print included in this copy figures a fisherman, which is much rarer than the "usual" one with a naked women lying on a bed included in most copies (less than 50 copies in a 500-copy printrun).

Introduction by Fabien Ribéry (in French only) : "L'être humain est lourd, terriblement, voilà bien son drama. Lorsque l'on est artiste, poète, compositeur de félicités, il est possible de s'alléger par la grâce du style. Alain Laboile est de ceux-ci, dont l'apesanteur est à la fois une recherche, une éthique et une nostalgie. Quand le quotidien est...
