He has undertaken several projects ranging from photos of bellybuttons to landscapes. His sense of humour and wonder is most evident in ‘Dreams of Flying’ where children are photographed from above while lying on the ground amidst various props. In those photographs everyday objects become magical worlds where anything is possible; children can fly and plastic tubs are pirate ships. His surreal images have honesty and playfulness and you can’t but smile when looking at them.
