Photographer Dominic Hawgood uses the language of cinema to craft documentary-style stories. Carefully staging his shots and using dramatic, high-contrast lighting, he aims to “challenge notions of truth by disrupting a more traditional documentary aesthetic,” he has said. Frequently drawn to culturally pervasive and individually resonant moments, Hawgood often chooses subjects that involve religious iconography and collective spiritual practices. “I am interested in the process of representing another’s internal experience,” he has said. In his “Under the Influence” (2014) series, Hawgood documents a Christian revival meeting, his camera isolating tiny, easily overlooked movements within the larger chaos of the highly constructed service. Previous series documented Texan residents believed to be speaking in tongues and monolithic Dallas-area church signs, each image as formally constructed as a staged movie still.
