"Dominic Rouse would be the first to admit that his use of the camera and the darkroom are unusual.  Photography as a wide and varied community of folks is a very big tent indeed and his corner of photography has few fellow travellers.  Contemporarily Jerry Uelsmann comes to mind. But when I think of his work I think more of the painters Bruegel, Hieronymus Bosch and René Magritte. Rouse does not photograph the world he makes photographs of his mind.  Looking at his images is a profoundly different experience than looking at, say, an Ansel Adams photograph. With Adams one prepares for his photographs by reading John Muir.  With Rouse one prepares by reading Lewis Carroll, or even Freud."
(Brooks Jensen - LensWork Publishing, 2007)

 

I feel more of a kinship with Magritte and Goya than I do with Adams or Weston. 
The deliberate attempt to divorce photography from the history of painting is a mistake. 
It has led to the production of a lot of sterile imagery much of which is unjustly praised.
Dominic Rouse - The Artist's Journal, September 2010
