SUPERTOURIST CITIES (1971-2011)

Despite globalisation, the world's most important tourist cities have been able to maintain their unique character. That is what makes a confrontation with a city like this – and particularly its buildings – such a rich and intriguing experience, says Max Pam. Anyone walking through the great European cities, or New York, feels the history that permeates the place. Pam records the buildings, and also the people, who on the other hand represent the present. Now and then they are brought together and fused into a new whole.

Max Pam

RAMADAN IN YEMEN (1993)

As a twenty year old hippie the adventurer Max Pam (b. Australia, 1949) travelled from Calcutta to London. That has been followed by a life full of journeys, through India, Pakistan, Nepal, Ethiopia and his homeland Australia, among other places. From the beginning Pam recorded his adventures in writing and in photos. That was also the case for the trip he made through Yemen during the month of Ramadan in 1993. Like the populace, he fasted by day and only began to eat after sundown. In the meantime he made notes on the desert, the architecture, the chewing of khat, the very present men and the women hidden behind black fabric. The latter gazed at him, as he himself wrote, ‘penetratingly with their sexy black eyes.’
