A gift to the nation: Archival books honouring WW2 veterans

On 7 November 2018, Momento Pro and the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers proudly donated an archival inkjet printed book to the National Library of Australia, to commemorate the ‘Reflections Project – Honouring our WWII Veterans.’

Our presentation of the AIPP Reflections books to the National Library of Australia last Wednesday, will go down in Momento’s history as one of our most memorable experiences. Geoff, James and Libby were intensely proud to handover two large leather-bound archival books in the presence of 14 veterans and their families, and seeing the look of joy and gratitude on their face as they found their portrait among the pages, was priceless.

Middlehurst | Middle Earth wins APPA Album Award 2018

‘Middlehurst | Middle Earth’ by Peter Eastway was the winner of the AIPP’s Australian Professional Photography Book Award 2018. We asked Peter how he went from 10,000 shots to 46 impeccably sequenced photos across 88 gigantic pages.

Kudos to Peter Eastway for creating two of the five finalist books in the 2018 AIPP Australian Professional Photography Book Award, but it was his inkjet printed limited edition, Middlehurst | Middle Earth that earned a Gold Distinction and the crown. The judge’s felt it was “an absolute standout … a work of art … a real masterpiece.”  We agree that it was the complete package, with exceptional photography, a simple sophisticated design and production values that did the photographs justice. Read on to learn more about what the judges thought, and how to put together an award-winning photo book from the master himself.
