I'm Philipp Apler, a self-taught photographer from Germany. I've been taking pictures since my teenage years. What began as a hobby, has since then turned into a serious passion. Since 2020 I publish my images under the alias Monophil, focussing mainly on architectural subjects with the occasional landscape series inbetween.
