Federico "Monty" Kaplan (1986) is a photographer from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
As a photographer he delves into the realms of self-reflection, questioning our perception of reality. His work explores the interconnectedness of subjective experiences and the objective world, unveiling the unseen and existing solely as presentiment. With a background in filmmaking, he crafts unique narratives filled with atmosphere that blur the line between fiction and documentary, inviting the viewer into contemplative spaces.
He is the Winner of the Sony World Photography Award Professional Enviromental Category (with Marisol Mendez)
He was selected as an Single Image Winner’s of BJP’s “International Photography Award” and for the first ever “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.
