"In the history of photography, interest in the terrible inequality existing among human beings was passed from Brassai to Weegee before Diane Arbus confronted it.  Dominic Rouse embraces it, not as a social but as an ontological experience.  This is not mere spectacle or the staging of a weird, repressed universe but rather a sacred, essentially moralistic and messianic vision.

These unusual beings illuminate and reveal humanity's potential destiny.  As in all disputes between traditionalists and iconoclasts, Rouse's photographs are bound to incite passionate debate over the legitimacy of images that confront the relationship between perversion and morality, matter and spirit, the secular and the divine." 
(Aasim Akhtar - The Friday Times, Vol. XXIII No. 42)

 

He preferred death by crucifixion to the slow suffocations of marriage, mortgage and morality.
I am tempted to call Him a coward.
Dominic Rouse - The Artist's Journal, August 2011
