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. Email:[email protected]

  • 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…

    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!

    i want to use this medium to say thank you to Doctor Zazaz the great spell caster for what he has done in my life with his spell. He brought my man back to me with his magic spell when i least expected and I’m very proud to write on the internet just to let the world know the great help i got from Doctor Zazaz. My man and i broke up and i never believed that we can be reunited again until i read an article on the internet of how Doctor Zazaz the great spell caster has helped so many people with his spell so i decided to give him a try which was in my favour and here am boldly celebrating and jubilation because i Doctor Zazaz brought my man back with his wonderful spell within 12 to 16 hours. Do you need help of any kind then contact Doctor Zazaz the great spell caster via email: [email protected]

    Hello, my name is angel I can’t hide this amazing testimony that took place in my life. A powerful spell-caster named Dr. Alimosho helped me to bring back my love who left me while I was six months pregnant and went on a peace keeping mission in Holland. We both love each other and it was a shock to me and it really broke my heart. I tried to call him and both of his lines were disconnected. I tried to reach him on social networks but he deleted me off of them. I tried to reach his parents and they told me that their son said that he does not love me and does not want to see me and they do not know what is wrong. I cried and cried everyday because I loved him very much. Until I gave birth and the baby was one year old, I could not get my love back. Again, I was confused. I do not know what to do and I also lost my job and I have no money to take care of the baby. I was miserable in life so I cried to my sister and told her my problem and said that she knew of one powerful spell caster that helped her when she could not get pregnant. I contacted him by email and he said he will help me and told me that a woman cast a spell upon my man and said he will help me break the spell so my man will come back to me and be mine forever. It was a great surprise to me that everything that he said came to pass. My man came back to me immediately, saying that I should forgive him. I am sending a very big thank you to this powerful and real spell caster. I pray for him to live long and do more of his wonderful work. If you have any kind of problem disturbing you in life, you have to contact this powerful spell caster! He can help him through this email;[email protected]
