Most recently he was nominated for the Aperture West Book Prize, the Santa Fe Prize for Photography, and named one of PDN’s 30 for 2009. The work has been featured in The Paris Review, Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, Artweek, and the Sunday Telegraph Magazine(UK). in 2005, he received an American Scandinavian Foundation grant to photograph the fishermen and whalers of Northern Norway.
