Portraits of Modern Day Witches, Healers, Spell Casters and Visionaries

Katarzyna_Majak_photographyElwinga, a Druid

Women of Power is Warsaw-based photographer Katarzyna Majak‘s series celebrating the spiritual women living in Poland. Ranging in ages 30-80, Majak’s subjects are modern-day witches, healers, Wiccans, Druids, spell casters and visionaries, channeling the pagan and shamanic beliefs of their ancestors. Intrigued by these unconventional spiritual paths existing within the predominantly Catholic country, Majak traveled throughout her native land collecting portraits and stories from 29 women. Her resulting images catalog a variety of wise and powerful practitioners, standing solid with their talismans and tokens of choice.

Majak is represented by the Anzenberger Agency.

  • Donellacandra

    Well, the article says throughout the countryside of Poland. So they are probably not necessarily on this site to answer more specifically.

  • TheRedOne

    I have been thinking of an identical project!
    As a Pagan, I cannot thank you enough for these amazing and honest portraits :)

  • michelle

    becoming wiccan soon, any advice?

  • Janus

    The legend of those photographies are twisted : wicca is a New Age invention so it cannot be a Polish traditionnal practice. This claim to be connected to the roots is a fantasy, not a reality.
    Anyway, those portraits are an interesting anthropological testimony.

    I just love it, classicaly I guess you would say that what is called a warlock, He is 43 and have been studying magic for over 20 years, recently he proved to me that it does and will work, you see I had a court case I was worried about losing, i contacted Dr. Shawuru Waziri, who help me with a spell to win a court case, performed it the night before court and won my case in less than an hour. Thanks again Dr. Shawuru Waziri. You can still contact him today to help you with any difficulty you are passing through.

  • Karen Prosen

    I feel really resonant towards Maria. Wish I could learn from her

  • Piper Harrow

    A worthwhile endeavor in portraiture!
    By the way, Janus, being rooted to ancient tradition isn’t necessarily genetic or geographic, and migration and the mixing of races DOES occur in the world…

  • Mystie

    I love that this artist chose to photograph these women in natural light with white backgrounds. She didn’t force them to pose aside stereotypically evil or wiccan ornaments, colors or context.

  • Tyrvald

    Wicca isn’t necessarily New Age. It’s revivalist. Ásatrú isn’t Polish either, is much less so than Wiccan practice, which could be quite Polish because the specific folk beliefs involved can vary quite a bit…

  • Tyrvald

    Focus on mythology before magic! Avoid love spells and curses!
