To July 28. One of the leading figures in Spanish contemporary photography. 

In his work, which is close to visual poetry, Chema Madoz reveals a constant interest in the symbolic, producing images noted for their subtle play of paradoxes and metaphors that lead him to create an imaginative and reflective world of his own. By slightly modifying the most ordinary of objects and altering their function, context and everyday uses, Madoz questions reality in his pieces, many of which are pervaded by a delicate irony, and invites the viewer to observe and to speculate, to discover the hidden poetry in these items.

Casa Milà, popularly known as «La Pedrera» (the stone quarry), an ironic allusion to the resemblance of its façade to an open quarry, was constructed between 1906 and 1912 by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). For its uniqueness, artistic and heritage value has received major recognition and in 1984 was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, for its exceptional universal value. Nowadays is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and houses a cultural centre that is a reference in Barcelona for the range of activities it organises and the different spaces for exhibitions and other public uses it contains.
