Paparazzi photos allow us to spy into the everyday lives of our favorite celebs. We can see who they lunch with, where they vacation and who they hang out with, but what if we could see their lives from a different perspective? Their own. With so many pictures being taken of your favorite celebs, do you ever wonder what they themselves take pictures of?

Dominic Monaghan of Lord of the Rings and LOST is showcasing an exhibition of his photography at Los Angeles’ Hamilton-Selway Fine Art gallery now through March 27.

The exhibition is titled “Happy Accidents” and according to the World Entertainment News Network is described by Monaghan as, “Those moments where you don’t expect what is going to happen, but it ends up being something good.”

Happy accidents or not, it’s apparent that photography is just one more talent that Monaghan has under his belt (In addition to acting, Monaghan is also an accomplished musician, but what actor isn’t these days, right?) This particular creative outlet is a way for Monaghan to enjoy one of his true passions. Nature. Which happens to be the focus of most of his photography.

Monaghan has been known to be a zealous wildlife enthusiast and has supported many wildlife organizations. 20 percent of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation.

The exhibition also features photos of many of the British import’s former costars from both Lord of the Rings and LOST, including Matthew Fox, Josh Holloway, Billy Boyd, Elijah Wood and Sir Ian McKellen.

These photos serve as a glimpse into the real life and interests of the actor famous for portraying Oceanic 815’s favorite junky.
