ARTSLANT

Under the Influence delves into the masked rituals of contemporary Christianity embraced by churches in London's African community. Inspired by the experience of witnessing an exorcism, Dominic attended a succession of church meetings and sermons, where his motives were routinely challenged. Pastors were invariably skeptical, an attitude at odds with the very public promotion of deliverance. These highly-stylized images accentuate that contradiction, hinting at the merchandizing of these rituals and engaging in issues of authenticity. Under The Influence won Dominic the BJP International Photography Award and bagged him an upcoming solo show at TJ Boulting.
