In 1993, Australian photographer Max Pam traveled Yemen and maintained a photo journal of his journey. Having left his home country in 1969 to pursue his art and his interest in Islamic culture, he produced 60 roles of black-and-white film during Ramadan in Yemen. Below are some of the moments he captured, via The New YorkerHis work is on display in Doha, coinciding with this year’s holiday.
