Momento Pro was honoured to produce this custom collector’s edition book and box set for British war photojournalist Tim Page. Nam Contact is an epic retrospective of his unseen black-and-white Vietnam War pictures encompassing an oversized 448-page book, a reproduction of a 1966 Kodak flexographic box with an insert for a loupe, and an embossed folio case for a signed and numbered print. Learn about its creation in Will Shipton’s article, Nam Contact: Symphonic coda to Tim Page’s Vietnam, originally published in Inside Imaging on 16 April 2021.
Singaporean born, Melbourne-based filmmaker, Ling Ang, has been journaling her dreams for years, and her upcoming photo book Souvenirs of Sleep is where she reveals them. Her limited edition book produced by Momento Pro weaves together photographs captured from her conscious world to illustrate the narratives of her subconscious mind. Here we interview Ling and designer Ned Rahmanovic about the book’s origins and playful design, and take you behind-the-scenes of its production.
At Momento Pro, we not only print and bind photo books, we advise on the design and binding that best suits their purpose and budget, as well as ways to fund, launch, promote and sell them. For the inexperienced photo book creator, there are many decisions that will affect the cost and success of your publication. Our aim is to guide you through the maze and help deliver the best outcome for you and your book. Here we outline some projects we worked on in 2019, and the secrets behind their success.
There should be no surprise that we at Momento Pro believe photographers can elevate their work in print. This philosophy inspired us to introduce a softcover book range that includes perfect bound books and saddle-stitched booklets. They are more affordable and lightweight format making them ideal for self publishing, exhibition catalogues, client guides, and leave-behind portfolios.
A group of talented Australian female photo artists, Lumina Collective, produced a series of booklets they could send to agencies, picture editors, galleries and fans, and below they share the story of their collaboration, and creation of various publications.
