Women, Witchcraft and the Woods: Photography by Rik Garrett

Note: Contains nudity.

Using old camera equipment and the nineteenth-century wet plate collodion process, American photographer Rik Garrett created “Earth Magic,” a series exploring the historical, literary, and personal connections between femininity, nature, and the occult. Alone and in groups, the women pose nude, observing arcane rites and channeling a feral beauty. The collection unveils an eternal, parallel world—a liminal space that is sustained and empowered by mythology, natural energies, and the witches’ sabbath.
