Powerful Portraits of Modern-Day Witches


Polish photographer Katarzyna Majak celebrates the alternative and unconventional spiritual paths of women in her home country, which is predominantly Catholic. Modern-day witches, Druids, healers, and others are featured in her series, Women of Power, each subject empowered by her talisman of choice. Majak’s “fascinating journey from woman to woman (the youngest in her early 30s, the oldest in her late 80s) led her all over her native land as she sought female wisdom and the plurality of spiritual paths hidden within Poland’s mono-religious society.” For some of the women, whose photos we first spotted on Beautiful/Decay, this is the first time they have gone public to reveal their beliefs. Take a closer look in our gallery, and visit Majak’s website to learn more.
