MOM presents a launch for its 10th title Real Crooks Are Never in Prison, a publication by Melbourne (Naarm) based photographer Lawrence McCrabb.

The book presents an Australian road trip diary like no other. The images display Lawrence’s point of view in regard to the still present visual identity of colonialism and nationalism on the Australian flag and through our nation.
