About Me

Lens-based artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. His work interweaves and mixes elements of documentary, fiction and fine art photography, using the medium to tell unique narratives imbued with a strong cinematic approach informed by his background in filmmaking. 
Some of the recurring themes explored through his practice are obsession, memory, metaphysical terror and tension between subjective and objective perspectives upon the world. 


He is the Winner of the Sony World Photography Award Professional Enviromental Category and Single Image Winner of BJP’s “International Photography Award”.
He was selected for the first “Fresh Eyes International” books from GUP Magazine.
He was also shortlisted for Palm Photo Prize 2020 and for The British Journal of Photography’s “Portrait of Humanity Vol. 4”.  


Monty has exhibited work across the globe in USA, London, Germany and Argentina.
His work has appeared on numerous publications, including It’s Nice That, Der Greif, GUP, The British Journal, PHMuseum, i-D among others.
