Dominick Tyler

United Kingdom


Dominick grew up in rural Cornwall and moved to London to study philosophy at UCL. His photography career started in student media and quickly led to freelance work for national newspapers. Since then he has built up a long list of editorial, commercial and NGO clients. In his personal work, Dominick frequently explores the relationships between people and their environment, often focusing on the experiences of indigenous communities around the world. His long-term project “The Edge of Two Worlds”, documenting the changing lives of a community of Innu in northern Canada, won the Marty Forscher Fellowship Award for Humanistic Photography in 2005, and second place in the Observer Hodge award in 2004. This work was published internationally and exhibited in the Leica galleries in Frankfurt and Solms, and in the Proud Gallery in London. In 2007 Dominick collaborated with writer Kate Rew on the best-selling book Wild Swim which was credited with launching an outdoor swimming revival. Dominick wrote and photographed Uncommon Ground, which was published by Guardian Faber in 2015. He continues to balance commissioned work with long-term projects and collaborations.
