“Objects have the same character that words do when you put one next to the other: they contaminate one another and meanings change. I profit from those circumstances.”

In the 1990s, Madoz began to question the everyday uses of objects by manipulating and accentuating their characteristics in his photography. Without digital alteration, Madoz photographed either unaltered objects or objects that he manipulates or invents himself. He considers himself "an objectual sculptor who works from a photographer's point of view."
