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.
A 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 René 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.
