His staging of the ordinary creates a simulacrum, and the neutral elements of our daily lives take on new meanings. No matter where they are captured, his images are enigmatic documents that gradually give rise to a sense of uncertainty.

His minimalist images create a muted aesthetic that deterritorializes things and beings, gradually leading the viewer into Fictional spaces.
