About the Book
I was told after my journey to South East Asia that I had become a man. I believed it as fact and was proud of my victory. I had collected experiences of a far off place and far removed people. I had come back and survived to tell the tales. Basic experiences in Culture are photographs of an unreliable witness. Photographs that are proofs of the little else than the authors agency. I want to embrace my own fallibility and accountability by revisiting photographs from this period. My affected respect as expert amateur, my authority and representation, my relationship with domination and control.
