Dominic Hawgood’s work has emerged out of photography’s expanded field. His practice spans still and moving image, and uses light installation to reflect on the experience of the real world within the digital realm.

He is a cross disciplinary artist now working with simulation, drawing upon fields such as Computer Science and Visual Effects to explore realism using light, lens, and code. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art his most notable achievements amongst others have included, winning the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award, being selected for Foam Talent, headlining PhotoIreland Festival, and exhibiting at Whitechapel Gallery.

This year he has shown at Haus der Photographie der Deichtorhallen, Hamburg and is part of another upcoming group exhibition at Nobel Peace Centre, Oslo.
