More China Photos

Here are a couple of shots of the Great Wall of China which I took in September when I visited Beijing. We chose to visit a less popular spot on the Wall at Mutianyu and had the great pleasure of being able to walk without crowds - on the day we went there were no more than a dozen people over a couple of kilometres. We took the chairlift to the Wall (the only way up) and then rode a 2.5km toboggan down the mountain. What fun!

Max Pam's Unique Journey

The Cover of Max Pam's Atlas Monographs
This year each freelance feature I've written for Pro Photo magazine has brought me in contact with the most inspirational, insightful, talented and generous artists. My December feature on Australian photographer Max Pam is no exception. Max was a delight to interview - intelligent, honest and somewhat eccentric, a state I think Max has happily inhabited all his life. His latest book, Atlas Monographs published by T&G Publishing in Sydney (a fantastic company dedicated to producing the highest quality art and photography books) features this photo on the cover. Max has spent decades documenting the melting pot that is Asia and Atlas Monographs charts his epic journeys from the early 1970's to the most recent photos taken in 2006. Look out for this story in Pro Photo December out early in the month.
