Earth Magic. Exorcising and purging childhood fascinations regarding the occult and femininity. Photographed using the wet plate collodion process.

“Inspirations for this series came from ideas regarding witchcraft – what is considered a “witch” in different cultures or different times? I was largely inspired by books written in the 15th and 16th century made for the purpose of “hunting” witches. These books demonized women and described them as being almost inhuman. I thought that this might not necessarily be a bad thing. The authors were almost romanticizing their otherness. I connected this to thoughts from when I was younger – women seemed mysterious, as though they were part of a secret cabal that I was denied entrance to. I felt as though there was some kind of occult knowledge being passed down, and I felt left out. So in some ways, “Earth Magic” is my attempt at illustrating this world. A world where a tribe of women exist apart from society, attuned to the Earth, possessing pre-historical knowledge of nature and its mysteries.” – Rik Garrett
