Phnom Penh 12000, Cambodia
Dominic Ronzo was raised in northern California, by a pack of feral women. He spent his childhood wandering the woods around his home and staring into the abyss, talking to himself about whatever thoughts arose.
In his teenaged years, Dominic was introduced to photography, and since then he has been talking to himself while looking through a lens. Eventually, he found himself graduating with a B.A. in Visual Journalism, from Brook’s Institute of Photography.
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.
