He has received a number of awards for his photographic work, namely: the World Press Photo, the Lange-Taylor Prize, the Duke and Duchess of York Prize, etc. He is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship.

He has published four books. His latest one entitled War Sand, will be presented on Thursday, 7th December at 5pm on the Photography Study Program premises, Academy of Arts, University of Novi Sad. The book War Sand is the result of a years-long research on war and historical victims, which has shifted the authors, otherwise documentary approach, to a more radical inclination towards the concept and research of the text as an important factor in contemporary art practice.

The lecture is open to everyone interested.
