Under the Influence
Course: Photography MA, Royal College of Art
Inspired by his experience of witnessing an exorcism ritual, Dominic Hawgood’s images look at trends within evangelical Christianity, popular among African communities in London. Combining photography, CGI, lighting design and installation, this work explores the theatrical practice of deliverance and examines the merchandising strategies used to sell faith. Ultimately this project engages with topics of authenticity, desire and beliefs.
