If you love photography, you’ll be quite impressed by Chema Madoz, a Spanish photographer who won The National Photography Prize in 2000. But what is it exactly that makes his photographs so unique? He always shoots with natural light and uses a medium format Hasselblad. However, the extreme sensibility of his photographs go beyond technicism.
When being asked about what inspires his work, he always answers “Everyday objects”. However, these common objects seen through his lens couldn’t be described as common. His surreal photographs are thought-provoking, they generate stories and create reactions. Nobody stays indifferent. On the other hand, If you had a chance to listen to him talk, you’ll realize how sensible, calm and gentle he is, just like his photographs.
This is a selection of my favourite photographs. What are your thoughts about them?
