Federico "Monty" Kaplan (1986) is a nomadic photographer from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
He uses photography as a tool to question our perception of the reality we inhabit. With his camera, he explores intersubjective spaces, that are shaped from the relationship between our subjective experiences and the objective nature of things. In his portraits, he creates a strong sense of intimacy with his subjects by centering on their eyes, as a window into their private self's, imbuing these captured moments with a strange familiarity.
His background in filmmaking helps him create unorthodox narratives filled with atmosphere that blur the line between fiction and documentary.
Monty has exhibited work across the globe in USA, London, Germany and Argentina.
His project “The Measure” was recently selected to be part of the FOLIO masterclass with PHMuseum and Witty Books.
His work has appeared on numerous publications, including It’s Nice That, PH Room and i-D.
