Thank you to Uncle Lim for hosting the exhibition at his shop.

Juria presents "Island of Memories - Pulau Ubin" an exhibition of 51 nostalgic photographs - personal and found - of things and ordinary people on the island from the past till present day.

Juria, a visual artist, uses photography to explore themes of memory, identity and place and has several honourable mentions at various photography awards.

The exhibition will be at Uncle Lim's shop in Ubin Town, a place full of history of its own. Uncle Lim's shop has colourful umbrellas and is opposite the Wayang Stage, next to the little red temple in the centre of Ubin Town, about a 3-minute walk from Ubin Jetty.
