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."

The glass is in the same place as her public hair. Women generally get hair in that region, although, pop culture makes you thinks otherwise

What if, as an artist, now stay with me on this one... It was all intentional: The slightly hairy arms, the slightly office center glass that could be something else, the fact that she's not standing exactly straight, the image stopping at the chin, etc? What if it makes you think about larger issues?...

Something to do with stereotyping perhaps?

A similar image was used in a U.S. television commercial. I don't remember what they were selling. It was promptly yanked off the air. Some of my fellow Americans have no sense of humor.

Other than a lot of hair on the arms, the glass isn't centered enough to be what I think he was going for.
