Elianne van Turennout Profile picture In traditional stories and artworks, the devil is often depicted as a terrifying creature, shrouded in darkness and with a sinister appearance. This representation serves to emphasise temptation and evil, making it difficult to understand why people would be tempted by it. However, in a more layered interpretation, we may question whether this depiction represents the full complexity of human nature and temptation.

The concept of the Fall, in which Adam and Eve surrender to the temptation of the serpent, is a central theme in many cultural and religious traditions. The devil's role in these stories is often enhanced by his ugly and sinister appearance, which makes us wonder why the characters in these stories are tempted by such a terrifying creature.

However, another interpretation of these stories suggests that the temptation comes not so much from the appearance of the tempter, but rather from the attraction of the forbidden fruit itself. The temptation is not inherently linked to ugliness or darkness, but rather to the promise of knowledge and power held out by the tempter.

It is important to keep in mind that human nature is complex and temptation can take many forms. Sometimes it comes from unexpected sources, and sometimes it is wrapped up in beautiful and attractive appearances. The role of the devil in these stories reminds us that temptation is a constant challenge that we must all learn to resist in our own way.

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.
