About

My name is Monica Carvalho, I’m a Swiss photographer passionate about finding similarities in unrelated things. Since a young age, I've had a fascination for all things art and illusionism. I admire the work of the Surrealists and the infinite possibilities that the medium of photography offers for playing around. The turning point was when I discovered Adobe Photoshop, which allowed me to merge my photos with my imagination.

Since then, my motto has been to make "the ordinary extraordinary" - to elevate the meaning of everyday things.

A significant aspect of my work is that I only use photos taken by myself. This challenge makes my artistic adventures very exciting and personal, as I share an intimate connection with each element in my photomontages: I know the models, touched the objects, saw the buildings, stroked the animals, ate the foods, played the instruments...
