Juria Toramae (b. 1983) is a visual artist and photographer based in Singapore. She was born in Morocco, raised in Egypt and Thailand and educated in Malaysia and Singapore. Having lived as an itinerant, she is guided by an interest in place attachment and displacement and her practice reflects on how the environment changes through the lens of memory. Her work often employs archives, fieldwork, and photography to construct realities that are grounded in social memories. Since 2013, her work has been showcased at the Singapore Art Museum at 8Q, the Singapore International Photography Festival, The Photobook Exhibition for Athens Photo Festival (Greece), the Obscura Festival of Photography (Malaysia), and the Chiang Mai University Art Center (Thailand).
