His photographic approach focuses on a scrupulous sociological observation of human groups and while the formal qualities of his images are visually appealing they often reflect an acerbic visual commentary on our collective preconceived socio-political constructs.

From his earlier documentary approach to photography, his work has since evolved to encompass a more cinematographic perception of his environment.
