In 1996 Adrian Zecha, the legendary creator of Amanresorts, invited Basil to travel the globe to create a "portrait" of Aman's luxurious properties to commemorate the company's first decade. The assignment took Basil to Phuket in Thailand, Bora Bora in French Polynesia, Bali, Moyo Island and Java in Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, New South Wales in Australia, Courchevel and Beaujolais in France, Palawan in the Philippines and Yangon in Myanmar. Photographed in black and white, the book seeks to capture the atmosphere and experience of the exotic locations through a journalistic style of imagery.
