Warren has spent more than 25 years honing his skills as a commercial photographer, including documenting the evolution of the American Indian Center of Chicago and its annual Powwow.

Influenced by years of involvement with the American Indian Center (AIC) of Chicago, his images portray the significance and beauty of his community, family and friends.

He co-developed the photography exhibit "50 Years of Powwow" which recently was published as a book by Arcadia Press. 

His work is part of the permanent AIC's installation located on the "Our Lives" exhibit in the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in Washington DC.
