Elianne van Turennout Profile picture In a foggy landscape, an intriguing scene unfolds on a calm water surface. Thick patches of fog hang low, making the horizon only vaguely visible, and the surface of the water and the sky seem to merge into one another. Rising from the water are breakwaters, which on closer inspection are giant matchsticks. Their colossal, charred structures rise menacingly above the water, like silent witnesses of a destructive force.

A woman balances on the last matchstick, sharply outlined against the misty background. She wears a tight black jumpsuit and a broad black hat, which give her a mysterious and powerful appearance. Her posture is confident, almost defiant. In her right hand, she holds a giant matchstick, the tip of which burns brightly with a fiery orange flame. The light from the flame cuts through the mist and casts a jagged shadow on her face and clothes.

The burnt matches in the water symbolise the bridges that have been burned, a powerful image of closed paths and final choices. The mist intensifies the sense of isolation and mystery, emphasising the uncertainty and invisibility of the future. The woman on the last log with the burning match depicts the conscious act of burning the last connections. Her position on the last log and the fiery match in her hand suggest that she is ready to take the final step, say goodbye, and embark on a new, invisible path.

It all started with a4 paper and HB pencils. As a child I was often impressed by how beautiful the world around me was. The urge to capture this beautiful world, and to show the people around me what I saw, was actually there from the beginning. If I remember correctly, I was about eleven years old when I first met the camera. Of course it was a simple compact camera with a ridiculous quality, but I enjoyed it.

I sometimes said I wanted to be a photographer, but of course you have one of the two parents who says, "Dream on." Strangely enough, I followed the sarcastic remark as advice, and still went to study photography.
