Maybe not so well known is that Dominic Monaghan had a photography exhibition in West Hollywood’s Hamilton-Selway Fine Art Gallery called “Happy Accidents” back in 2008, combining two of his life’s passions – photography and nature!
Dom defined ”Happy Accidents” as occasions when the “Cosmos” seems to take over, and make artistic decisions for you. He splits the subjects of his show in three; “Portraits,” “Nature” and “Happy Accidents.” He donated twenty percent of the proceeds to an Orangutan Orphanage in Borneo.
Today, all you have to do to see some of Dom’s photography is follow WILDTHINGSDOM on Instagram!
“Dominic worked closely with Hugh Milstein at DigitalFusion LA to digitally master the images and make gallery prints. The collaboration results in a dramatic first exhibit by Monaghan – and displays the raw power of large format fine art printing. Hugh recalls, ” When I first met Dominic, I was taken by his enthusiasm and drive to create images. He had so much energy already invested in the idea of a show – we just had to get comfortable, and start getting images together. He is an amazing talent, and can easily switch back and forth between multiple disciplines. This is a breakout show by an emerging artist.””
