The work of Sam Kaplan, a photographer based in New York City, is cleverly thought-provoking. It focuses on everyday objects that have been repeated almost monotonously in one image except for a minute detail. Whether that involves a broken egg in a sea of untouched eggs or an LED light bulb amongst a crowd of incandescent ones, Sam Kaplan ensures that he doesn't just put forth visually striking still life photos.

Graphic and perfectly composed, Sam Kaplan's Consumables and Disposables portfolios are particular noteworthy. The way he perceives such mundane items as condoms, toothpaste and even ice cream cones is captivating. Through his work, Sam Kaplan encourages people to look around them with new eyes. And to process how things have changed over the recent years.
