Born in October 1991, Dennese Victoria lives and works from the Philippines.
Working across photography, film, moving image and installation, her work touches on truth, memory, personal history, and the exchanges that occur between herself and a public found and formed through the slow sharing of her practice. Receiving a degree in Journalism from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila in 2012, she has since worked as an artist, educator, cultural worker, and cinematographer; filming for Shireen Seno’s second feature, Nervous Translation.
Through the Angkor Photo Festival, she has served as a tutor at the Anjali Photo Workshops for children and young people in Siem Reap, Cambodia; and in 2020, together with photographer and fellow Angkor Photo Workshops alumni, Swastik Pal, curated Even though the whole world is burning for the 16th edition of the festival.
In 2022, she collaborated with Singaporean artist, Lee Chang Ming for the publication, comfort book for nervous children, as part of Lee’s Conversations project and the Site Unseen programme of the Objectifs Centre for Photography and Filmmaking, Singapore.
