Books are a natural home for photo essays and they're a practical way to record long-term projects.  Here's some work from our customers.


Limited Editions for Collection

by Stephen Dupont
 

Book publishing has been revolutionised by the advent of digital print technology that allows artists to self-publish work in small edition sizes - a lucky coincidence given the decreasing interest  from trade publishers to take on art or photography publications.

Stephen Dupont now focuses on limited editions of 10 or less, produced as fine-art archival inkjet prints in custom made packaging. His work appeals is sought by local and international book collections including the National Library of Australia, State Library of Victoria and the American Library of Congress.

Photo Exhibition Book

by Jonathan May
 

Australian photojournalist Jonathan May self published a limited edition of 15 books to coincide with his Desert Ink exhibition at Head On Photo Festival 2015, Sydney. 

The Midnight Matte cover embossed with a custom graphic is an appropriate introduction to his story of reformed drug traffickers, now tattoo artists.  His inclusion of captions and short text passages enhance the visual narrative, and his choice of Satin 170 paper presents beautifully balanced black and white images.

Photojournalist Artist Proof

by Raphaela Rosella
 

We Met A Little Early But I Get To Love You Longer won Australian Photo Book Of The Year 2014.  It was part artist proof, part dummy book that presented Rosellla's investigation into teenage pregnancy and social disadvantage in regional Australia.

The initimate portraits, personal ephemera and text that reveals the inner thoughts of the subjects, make this a confronting work. It is also a superb example of how professional design and carefully chosen materials enhance the story being told.

Charity Organisation Donor Gifts

by Chris Peken
 

In January 2015, documentary photographer Chris Peken spent a day with 16-year old Nancy in Kibera, the second largest slum in Africa. The photo shoot and resulting book was commissioned by local charity, Oasis Africa Australia.

After a proof book was printed and signed off, we produced an edition of 50 books with Linen covers and a Printed Matte dust jacket, that Chris used as thank you gifts to major donors who allow the charity to offer scholarships to children like Nancy.
