Therese Debono is a documentary photographer covering places, the streets and portraiture: endangered places, local interiors, and documentary portraiture are amongst the subjects she explores and interprets. Her personal projects include Maltese Interiors, Brides on Beds, Class of ‘93 and Portraits of Youth. The latter is a new project which she has started working on recently through her experience with students as a photography lecturer.
Her main work with places revolves around the loss of heritage in her country as well as the over development that is currently on-going that is destroying the spirit of the places that once were so powerful and unique in the island of Malta.
Therese grew up in Malta, in the historical town of Haz-Zebbug. She graduated from the University of Malta with an MFA in Digital Arts and an MA in Cultural Heritage. She currently lectures photography and cultural heritage units at MCAST Institute for Creative Arts, as well as photography units at University of Malta within the departments of Communications and Media and Knowledge Science.
