There’s nothing sadder than watching a relationship between two lovers unravel and Goni Montes captures those moments in his series entitled ‘Can This Marriage Be Saved.’ Whether it’s a budding young marriage or one with children involved, it seems Montes’ subjects can’t maintain the fiery feelings they once had for one another. Viewers get a voyeuristic look at these lovers as they reach the apex of their tumultuous time together.

Goni Montes handles the heavy subject manner in a peculiar way, injecting each image with a cornucopia of colors and sometimes illustrating metaphors rather than actual scenarios. Viewers can comprehend the distance that’s increasing between two people through Montes’ rendering of a man and a woman on two different cliffs, and his image of a young wife holding a cracked egg on top of her belly tells a tragic tale involving a miscarriage.
