The Spanish photographer is convinced that no matter how mundane or ordinary the surrounding objects are, they are open to new and varied readings. “What we see is never what it seems,” says Chema Madoz.
For more than thirty years, Chema Madoz has occupied a special place in the international art scene. His works do not adhere to strict genre trends, although the imprint of surrealism was noted more than once. Black-and-white compositions from familiar objects that the photographer creates, collects or transforms in his studio allow the imaginary world to turn around and question our sense of perception.
“I don’t think about what kind of reaction they will cause the viewer,” the photographer says. – I look at the images that touch me, which touch me and make me feel like I am creating something for myself so far unknown. I would like to stand in front of my photo and feel that I can communicate with it. If the picture tells me something, I’m sure that other people will be able to experience the same. ”
