Rushing portrays the speed with which our competitive society is racing through their lives. In rush we are barely able to hear our surroundings. In rush we are barely able to see what is in front of us. In rush we are barely able to comprehend what our behaviour causes. Rushing not only blurrs our sight, but all of our senses. We are numbly rushing into an unknown future... For this series Dominique travelled across Switzerland portaying dramatic landscape scenes to encourage people to see beyond their accelerated every day life routines. Is it time to hit the breakes?

Dominique is an award winning amateur fine art photographer, highly passionate about dramatic alpine landscapes and corresponding storytelling. Playing with light and shadows, different perspectives and techniques to tell an emotionally captivating story is her signature. Dominique is located in central Switzerland and mostly photographs the Swiss and other European alps regions. She spends all of her free time hunting for "the moment" portraiying the beauty of the alps and addressing current social issues such as recentering, self-reflection and conservation.
