Chema Madoz

Chema Madoz's photography was introduced to me by Matthieu Espleyfrom Albi, France. The images are very simple in construction but clever in their conception.

Spanish photographer, born in 1958 as Jose Maria Rodriguez Madoz and known for surrealist black and white photographs. The images are astutely humorous in a similar vein to a RenĂ© Magritte painting or an Elliot Erwitt photograph.

Most of these image produce a wry smile on my face when I view them. They fit well with my own culture and thought processes, and no doubt I will take influence from them when taking my own photographs.
