Tjorven Bruyneel (°1983) is a Belgian photographer.
She received a Master degree in Photography from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Ghent (KASK) in 2007.


Her reality is relative. She questions her own experiences and bundles her findings into a set of interpreted facts. Her work reflects the desire to analyze her surrounding, to dissect a feeling that she is not able to put into words; it allows her to construct piece by piece as a puzzle her story.

The colorful images persuades the viewer to look behind every scene to discover an underlying message. Stolen glimpses of reality seen through a lens of abstract humor. Her observations displays society and invisible shifts in time, which questions our identity.
