Victoria Dempster has always been mesmerised by and immersed in the creative, visual world.
For twenty years she was an art teacher in a secondary school in London. Last year, she gave up her teaching career and embarked on a new life. She swapped the city for the desert and is currently living in Moab, Utah. She is now pursuing her dream of living and working full time as an artist.
Victoria is driven by the indescribable emotions that looking at a beautiful photograph can deliver. She believes that the aesthetic is essential to representation. She uses the formal language of photography to best tell the stories of the people who she encounters in her life.To achieve a true representation of the people she believes photographs must be a totally symbiotic experience between her and the subject. Therefore, all her projects are long-term, years rather than months. Technical skills are necessary and essential, but, ultimately, great relationships make great photographs.
