No Hope, No Fear.
Kailash, 1999.


Photographs and text by Max Pam.
Centre Atlantique de la Photographi, Paris, 2002. 72 pp., numerous color and black-and-white illustrations, 8¼x8¼".

The Australian photographer Max Pam has made a name for himself being something of an international wanderer. The journals in which he pens his thoughts and pastes his photographs are reminiscent of Peter Beard's diaries or Dan Eldon's sketchbooks, but not nearly as eccentric as the former nor as youthfully buoyant as the latter. In 1999 Pam travelled a route to the mountainous northern reaches of India on a spiritual pilgrimage the genesis of which lies as far back as 200-300 BC. He begins his journal with these thoughts. "A trip to Mount Kailash has always been regarded as a pilgrimage. The Tibetans believe that the harder the journey the greater the purification." No Hope, No Fear reproduces in facsimile each page-spread of the journal which is filled with both b&w and color photographs. Ethiopia takes a similar format, being the record of a trip to the ancient Christian, East African country in 1998. Two eccentric and thoughtfully produced books that are unavailable in the US.
