His photographic work has been exhibited in a number of London galleries and a book of his photographs, ‘Archive’ was published in 2005.
Summing up his philiosophy on the arena in which he works, he says: " when we lose sight of what charity should be about, it can quickly become the fuel of injustice. A status quo of giver and receiver develops; that is very dangerous, and I want to help people to shake that off. Charity should be about change. It is fundamentally revolutionary.”
