Chema Madoz (Madrid, 1958)  known for his surrealist captures in black and white, in 2000 he was awarded the National Photography Prize. The manipulation of photographs, is their personal seal and endows new meanings to everyday objects through experimentation and overlapping elements. Symbolism acts as a precedent in this stream full of meanings and minimalist appearance. Madoz has made many national and international exhibitions and has left a mark on every project he has presented.

In "The Still traveler" his last work, the artist has invested the usual artistic process developed so far, in which objects were responsible for bringing the concept to life. His work focuses on the ideas of Asturias, framing their customs, landscapes and people in an unusual way within the canons of Madoz. Traveling immobile causes the viewer to move to Asturias without moving from the site.

Curated by Borja Casani, the show has a video in which you can admire the interior of the Campoamor theater through a waterfall, a metaphor that for the curator means "how we see, at present, nature, as a show that, to contemplate it with many people instead of individually, loses its essence. " The exhibition has been organized and promoted by the María Cristina Masaveu Peterson Foundation in collaboration with the Conde Duque Cultural Center in Madrid.
