He is a great observer of life and uses unexpected materials to create portraits, landscapes and still life works which he then photographs.

This creative thinker has an interesting way of looking at the world. In the 15 minute TED Talks video below he describes the thinking behind his work and takes us on an amusing tour of his incredible images made from cotton, wire, thread, sugar, chocolate, dust, earth, clouds and food.
