Indian Ocean Journals
Since the end of the sixties, Max Pam has hit the road armed with his smile and a Hasselblad. He was more interested in the introspection of the people he met than in the beauty of the landscapes he was visiting. All the continents, except for America (which was reserved for Robert Frank, for his friend Plossu and Jack Kerouac), passed in front of his lens. In a few snapshots he succeeded in that rare feat, translate a more precise topography than the Guide du Routard and Lonely Planet combined. With Indian Ocean Journal, Max Pam never strayed very far from the Indian Ocean, always present during his stop-overs in India, Pakistan, Burma, China. He also explored new spaces explored for the first time: Yemen, Tanzania, Kenya.
In this travelogue, he also mentions in writing small occurrences that took place during each trip: encounters, anecdotes, practical information, occasional soul searching that cannot be transcribed on film. But leaving also implies returning and Max Pam never forgets his family, his children, who occasionally pop up as little vignettes, within this outing where time is kept at the rhythm of the ocean waves.
