His first solo exhibition was in 1983. Since then, he has won several awards: the Kodak Spain Prize (1991), the National Photography Award (2000), the Higasikawa Overseas Photographer Prize from the Higasikawa PhotoFestival (Japan) (2000) and the PhotoEspaña Award (2000). He has been widely exhibited internationally and his work is held in many public collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; Museo Marugame, Hirai, Japan; and Museo de Bellas Artes de Buenos Aires.
He has compiled several books (many available only in Spanish), but those on a budget wishing to have an introduction to his key images will be attracted to the small Chema Madoz Biblioteca Photobolsillo edition, priced at NZ$19.39 (including freight) at The Book Depository.
