LA book project consisted of a series of photographic diptychs that highlight the difference between a city and its image. Each double page presents a contradiction such as for example the actual skyline of the city and its painted, fictional duplicate; the rooftop Jacuzzi party next to the film shoot of CIS New York, being shot in Los Angeles. The double images echoes Rorschach prints, where one side is not quite the perfect reproduction of its opposite.
The Antipode series consists of a series of photographic diptychs always juxtaposing two exactly opposite points of the globe in a single image. Commissioned by and developed in collaboration with WIRED magazine the work was shot in a three-week period covering the stretches of the globe. In our one world society invisible international networks of, primarily, but not exclusively economical, cultural, and ecological systems supersede national boundaries. The series makes complex global relations palpable by visually collapsing geographical space to present a world inextricably connected in spite of similarity and difference.

Urban Myths juxtaposes those urban environments that have seemingly grown overnight irrespective of their natural environment with the often unlikely and inhospitable landscapes that surround them. The urban infringement on the natural environment is made visible through the glow of light pollution, be it through the trails of cars or planes attracted to the urban centres like moths to the light.
