"ATLAS MONOGRAPHS is a compression of nine travel journals, beginning with Pam's most recent work (Karakoram 2006) and shifting back through the decades to his first journals begun in 1970. The journals map, through text, photo and marks on paper his engagement with the cultures he has travelled through.
