Sam Kaplan: Insert Here
'My walk home from the subway takes me past an impressive number of sex shops. One day I realized that if taken out of context these objects could become beautiful artifacts. I wanted to light them in a way that enforced that idea, so I applied similar lighting as I would if I were photographing a luxury item.' Sam Kaplan
Sam Kaplan, a New York-based product and still life photographer, was inspired to create a series of photographs of an object that is often enjoyed in the bedroom rather than on a gallery wall. Sam decided to change all of that, and his series ‘Insert Here’ takes the taboo and transforms it into an exploration of line, form, and color.
