This work has been exhibited at the annual Noorderlicht Festival and featured in various forms of media, such as NPR radio, Life, Mother Jones, Focus and a special release book by Time/Life – Secret Societies. His work has been frequently featured in Norway’s Magasinet Plot and Life.com, including “Inside the Westboro Baptist Church”, which received two MIN Editorial Awards in 2011. In March, 2013, he worked with Left/Right Productions and the Discovery Channel on a documentary about the modern day Ku Klux Klan, KKK: Beneath the Hood.
