Black and White Illusions by Chema Madoz

If you love photography and and optical illusions, Spanish photographer Chema Madoz has a perfect mix for you! His unmistakable style is not burdened with unnecessary cluster and details, always in black and white and with a witty catch in every picture. The photographer creates this element of surprise by blending two unrelated objects that share at least one visually similar feature, or by placing an object in visually unexpected setting.

Born in 1958, Madoz studied History of Art at the Complutense University of Madrid and at the same time took photography courses at the Image Teaching Center. He had his first exhibition in 1983, and to date has held numerous exhibitions, published several albums, and was acknowledged with different international awards. Looking at his work, you almost hear Madoz say that things aren’t what they appear to be!
