A few years ago, we featured Spanish photographer Chema Madoz and his surreal, black and white photos. Born in 1958, and with several collections to his name, Madoz is famously coy about his pictures' aim, even when asked directly:

"The fact is that I don’t give any thought to the reaction they’ll cause in the viewer," Madoz told Bookstyle. "I look for images that move me and touch me, that make me feel that I’m doing something different which I wasn’t aware of. I want to be able to stand in front of my pictures and feel that I can communicate with them. If a picture says something to me, I feel confident that there may be other people who will experience the same thing."

Well spotted, I love looking at wood as there is always a pattern hiding somewhere.

Pretty clever, because in german vocabulary a bulb and a pear share their noun.

I see unlocked potential, or the destruction involved in the creative process. Part of building is tearing down. As a literal interpretation, if the records never get played/the cymbals never get hit, we'll never know the sounds they make. Consequently, they'll break. There's irony there too, impermanence vs. breaking records (literally and figuratively). #JustSpitballing #ILoveArt #BreakRecords
