Title: ‘Refuge’, Fine Art Photography by Anna Heimkreiter (Self-portrait, 2019)

Location: Upper Bavaria, Germany

About the artwork: This piece is for my childhood self. For the little girl who devoured stories with an insatiable hunger. That quiet girl who found a home between the pages of her books.

Before I discovered photography, books were my way to escape into the world of imagination. I was reading day and night, reading several books at once, often so deeply lost in those beautiful words that I would not even notice when my parents were talking to me. (They eventually started sending me to the local library to avoid financial ruin because of my eager reading habits).

I still have most of my childhood books, welcoming me like old friends every time I come home from my travels. As an adult, I read less, but I still do and always will. They are my home, my refuge – even after all this time (always). And if you’ve ever found a home in books, too, this photograph is for you.

P.S. I still consider it a miracle I survived the making of this self portrait – I had tied my camera with shoelaces to the ceiling fan above me. Not exactly what you would call a professional (or safe) mountain, but hey, it worked!
