Symbolism, texture and atmosphere permeate these images from my project on witchcraft. The purpose behind these images is to dispel the traditional view of witchcraft as a pursuit practiced by evil women. I endeavour to show instead that magic is a practice rooted in nature, not malevolence; more intricately linked with herbal-lore than potions. The coloured images express the emotions and feelings of witchcraft, weaving in nature’s own magic with signs and symbols traditionally linked with witchcraft. The black and white photos are rooted in historical accuracy. I researched the history of witchcraft locally and some sites are connected to witchcraft in the Bath area, for example the tithe barn pictured is covered in symbols designed to ward off witches.
