Dominic Rouse (born 1959) is a contemporary digital photographer from England. His stylized approach to photography consists of creating digital monochrome compositions that deconstruct and reconstruct the human form.

Early life and career[edit]

At the age of 16 Dominic Rouse started his photographic career as a press photographer for local and national newspapers. In 1982 he returned to college to study advertising and commercial photography. It was during this time period that he developed an interest in multiple exposure techniques using large format cameras. In 1986, after spending a brief time working with commercial agencies, he opened his own studio.

He was jailed in 2003 in Norwich for downloading, possessing and buying pornographic images of children.[1]
