by Joanne Fagan on Monday, 19 November 2012

Marking the end of Monty Python star Michael Palin's three-year tenure as the Royal Geographical Society's President, 'Travels with Michael Palin' is a free exhibition providing an intimate look at the photographs of Basil Pao, who has documented the work of Palin, one of the UK's best-loved broadcasters and writers, for nearly 25 years.

Taking thousands of photographs dating back to 1988, Basil Pao has expertly captured the diverse places and people encountered by Michael Palin on his travels; from stunning images taken during the current series 'Brazil' to a captivating record of Palin's earlier journeys.

Michael Palin himself said, "Basil is one of the finest still photographers in the business and has become indispensible on my journeys. He loves good food and drink, takes lots of amazing photographs, and wears a straw hat everywhere ensuring that I never lose sight of the film crew."
