In 2002, he was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum in London to undertake a war art commission in Afghanistan. These photographs of battle-sites and minefields have subsequently been exhibited in North America, Canada, Ireland, Spain, France, Germany, Korea, Japan and China. In 2003, he represented Wales at the Venice Biennale of Art, and in 1997, he won the Irish Museum of Modern Art sponsored Glen Dimplex Prize. He is presently represented by the Kerlin Gallery Dublin.
