Elianne van Turennout Profile picture A woman stands in a serene and urban setting, with her eyes not visible, evoking a sense of introspection and mystery. On her head balances an open book, whose cover has been artfully transformed into a roof, complete with chimney and roof tiles. This image symbolises a house, reinforcing the metaphor of the book as a refuge and source of comfort and security. The woman exudes calm and stability as she confidently balances the book.

In the background, stately and picturesque harbour houses rise up, standing in harmony along the horizon, exuding a sense of belonging and community. These houses, with their distinctive facades and rich architecture, contrast with the simplicity of the book, but at the same time reinforce the message that a home is more than just a physical place. The port houses symbolise the physical world, while the book on the woman's head represents the mental and emotional refuge.

The composition of the picture captures the essence of the phrase "Home is where the heart is" without naming it literally, emphasising the idea that true domesticity comes from personal imagination and inner peace. The image shows that one can feel at home anywhere, as long as one has a place where one feels safe and at ease. By keeping the woman's eyes out of the picture, it emphasises the symbolism of the book and harbour houses, inviting the viewer to think about their own interpretation of what home means.

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.
