Born and raised in Tunis, Oumayma now resides in Montreal.

In 2009 she participated in a photojournalism cultural exchange in Perpignan as part of the VISA pour l’Image festival.

Her work is informed by an interest in the emotions inspired in us by melancholy ambiences and the notion of memory and the imperceptible elements which surround it. Photography encourages her to seek out the ‘delicacy of the everyday’ to be found both while travelling and in the most casual encounter.
