A VERY BAD ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN!

Premier Wine Estates , an online wine company has launched an ad campaign called "taste the bush."  First of all, wine comes from vines, and trying to copy an image from Chema Madoz is an insult to the artist, and to the viewer as well.  I could not find the exact year he created this image, but I know that it is probably at least 10 years old.  Maybe more!

Found at Fotofest 2014


I've been attending the latest Fotofest open portfolios here in Houston the past couple of weeks. There are a lot of photographers here hoping to make an impression on their reviewers with their work.  I've attended 3 portfolio reviews at Fotofest myself in years past.  The open portfolio nights are a chance for the photographers to show their work to the public.

In 2010 I saw the work of Carolle Benitah.  She was sewing on photos of her family. These are photos from her body of work that Lens Culture gave her an award for in 2010.

Chema Madoz

Chema Madoz  is a Spanish photographer born in 1958.  He is known for his dramatic black and white surrealist work.

I am not writing about him because I think he has copied my work. Many artists use the book as their subjects and his photographs are very different from mine.

  I have found photographs from an Israeli photographer that are very similar to Madoz.

THIS IS NOT MY WORK


Ellen Cantor Photograph 2013.  Not a new idea at this time.  Check her website.  I believe her statement sounds vaguely familiar.  I think that possilby her forte appears to be more in the moldy food genre. 

The Photos below are Mine from 2011. They were exhibited at Desantos Gallery for Fotofest 2012.
