“My work is about externalising my inner thoughts, feelings and fears. I transform my subjects, which can range from every day objects, flowers, landscapes or people, with my use and manipulation of light. My photography is a visual representation of change. How I evolve as a person and how that affects how i see the world around me is the core of my creative drive. I truly believe that the only constant thing in this universe is transformation, so i visually manifest the changes i go through within myself by documenting my surroundings in a very subjective way.
Rather than having a preferred subject, or colour palette, my interest lies on how anything can become captivating and beautiful with the correct light. How i choose to light any scene or subject is always connected to a mood. In this regard my work tends to be more emotional than narrative, as i’m usually not concerned in telling a story with my images, but more to transfer emotion. I want the viewer to get as close as possible to experiencing the world through my eyes.
My photography is a surreal and subjective anthropological documentation of our world.” – Monty Kaplan, Buenos Aires, Argentina
