Camapna – Chema Madoz

This image was taken by Spanish Artist, Chema Madoz, who is known for his black and white surrealist photos. I’ve chosen it because it’s representative of his work- simple objects used to make visual puns.

In this image, smooth riverstones in a small frame filled with sand, form a quintessential thought bubble – the joke seems to be that the stones exist in a ‘zen garden’, and zen of course, being about clearing your mind from thought. It’s subtle and in many ways secondary to the design, but it adds a layer of meaning to the frame.
