Basil Pao began his photographic career in 1980 on his return to Hong Kong after 10 years in the United States, where he was an art director for recording companies Atlantic and Polygram in New York and Warner Brothers Records in Los Angeles. His work during that time included the book for the Monty Python film LIFE OF BRIAN, where he first worked with Michael Palin. They have since collaborated on nine books based on the travel series POLE TO POLE, FULL CIRCLE, HEMINGWAY ADVENTURE, SAHARA and HIMALAYA. He also created the limited edition books AMAN and BHUTAN for Amanresorts. His travel essays and other works, including photographs for Bernardo Bertolucci's THE LAST EMPEROR and LITTLE BUDDHA, have appeared in publications and exhibitions all over the world.
