Camille Aboudaram (b. 1989 in Lyon, France) is a Lisbon-based photographic artist. She graduated in 2015 with a BA in Photography and Illustration from the University of East London.

A strong believer in art’s primary purpose as feelings’ conveyor and therefore inter-human link, she developed an evocative and sensitive language, combining photography with illustration techniques or pairing it with other arts when relevant.

Aboudaram’s work touches upon issues of memory, marginality, otherness or identity, as well as feelings such as nostalgia, serenity, or empathy.

Amongst the various photography exhibitions Aboudaram completed since 2012, she has exhibited in London (Candid Arts, Truman Brewery), Oakland CA, Caldas da Rainha and Lisbon (solo show at the Arquivo Fotográfico Municipal de Lisboa with (we are) the Ghostly Others, 2015). In 2016, her first photobook (we are) the Ghostly Others (Lisbon, 2014) was part of the official Photobook Market selection in the festival Encontros da Imagem in Braga. In 2018 her project Moonscape Reverie was selected as part of the four winning projects of Significação: Outras Imagens do Jardim and exhibited in the Museu das Artes in Sintra, Portugal.
