Phnom Penh 12000, Cambodia
As a visual journalist, Dominic aims to discover some truth hiding within the subjects he photographs. The reasons we give meaning to our lives and the importance these meanings have for us are the driving forces of Dominic’s photographic curiosity. Be it a human face, a passing shadow or a verdant landscape-by creating a photograph Dominic has imbued it with meaning, at least one of the many truths that lay beneath the surface of things.
In this way, Dominic documents and investigates our intentions and serendipitous lives. Through his work, he wishes to discover what makes us beings of the earth, what chance encounters have created some circumstance, and how we can transcend from this reality and into another.

Dreams for Africa
Dreams for Africa is a project set up by a South African organization, Hillcrest AIDS Center Trust. HACT contacted me while I was living in New York, to help produce these images, promote their cause and publicity of the Dream Chair.
Something Untold is an attempt to affirm the idea that these everyday environments are not only reflections of Sudanese life, but that something untold remains in the brick and metal that shapes the city.
This series turns away from noisy, claustrophobic streets in favor of those scenes that have no voice. This muted perspective allows us to inspect a society that is imbued with careful conversations, and quiet dissent. In this way, we are free to ponder the lives and thoughts that take place in a world a of restrictions, without a direct narrative that suggests the kind of dissatisfaction or iron-rule that western media often presents.
