Momento – Archive Enhanced Edition
Momento is a book of photographs but it is so much more. It is a work of love created by George Zimbel and his wife Elaine Sernovitz Zimbel. Together they ushered this book from idea to reality using their own money and their passion and love for photography and each other. They designed it together, chose the photographs together and worked with the publisher to create a book that George thought truly expressed his vision of the world.
It is a vision of similarities, of pairs. How are they similar? That is the great fun of the book. Will you see what George saw? Or will you see something different? There is no right or wrong answer, these photographs speak for themselves, they are a moment in time captured by an eye with a heart. Deliberately there are no titles on the images, George wants you to look at the image first come to your own conclusion about what is happening, about who is in the picture before you know who or where it is. Enjoy!
Momento is available many places, through bookstores, museums and even Amazon so why buy it here? Three reasons:
- When you purchase the book here 100% of the proceeds go to George. He is still with us, though retired from the world. While he was a very successful photographer, artists don’t make much money, so he actually needs your support to survive.
- You will get more for your money. With the archive enhanced version you will receive five postcards that George created in the 1980s.
- You will receive a coupon that entitles you to one print at the family rate. That is 50% off the gallery rate.
