In his work, he simplifies and decodes as a strategy to deal with his own life’s circumstances, unknowns and systems. His works reflects on critical issues related to society, humanity, science and politics. His works vary between photography, film and installation, and have been presented in Florence, Iowa, Santa Cruz, Sofia, Sydney, and Tehran.
