His work has also appeared in THE BEST OF PHOTOJOURNALISM, an annual publication featuring the World’s best photographs of the year and is included in the book THE WORLD’S GREATEST BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY, published in 2007. His own book IMAGES OF CABBAGETOWN, published in 1994, contrasted the lives of those living in one of Canada’s most eclectic neighbourhoods and his photojournalism has been featured in newspapers and magazines internationally.
