His books have been exhibited by The Museum of Modern Art, noted by the New York Times Book Review, cited in histories of the medium (Parr/Badger, Auer & Auer, 10x10 American Photobooks) and issued by some of the foremost publishers of our time (Steidl, Hatje Cantz, Twelvetrees Press). They're considered 'intellectual milestones in photography' (Süddeutsche Zeitung), 'hellishly brilliant' (The New Yorker), notable by New York Times and a favorite of the photographer Robert Frank."
