In 2006, he received the Leica European Publishers Award for Photography for his book Beijing, Theatre of the People, and in 2009, the Nikon Story Teller Award at the PDN Photo Annual (USA) for his photographs of Cuba - a report commissioned by the New York Times Magazine, of which he has been a regular contributor since 2007.
