Dominick initially studied philosophy at UCL but quickly meanders into photography and freelance work for national newspapers.
Since then he has built up a wide list of editorial, commercial and NGO clients, shooting location portraits and reportage as well as more produced commissions. In his personal work, Dominick frequently explores the relationships between people and their environment and often focussing on the experiences of indigenous communities around the world.
His most recent project, The Landreader Project, saw Dominick collate a vocabulary for the British landscape, coupled with a year long excursion to photograph these sometime ephemeral moments in the landscape.This all manifested itself in a book called 'Uncommon Ground' with it being the first glossary of the British landscape.
The Landreader Project encompasses geology, ecology, geography and topography but treats these distinctions lightly, drawing equally from science, vernacular and lore to present an exploration of landscape as it is experienced. The richness and depth of the English language is apparent in the lexicon of the British landscape and so this work is also a study of words – colloquial, scientific, prosaic and poetic.
