Photographer Katarzyna Majakdiscovered a whole new side of Poland when she set out to explore her own spirituality.
It turns out there are lots of modern-day witches, who practice a collection of non-traditional religious and spiritual practices including spiritual healing, shamanism, Wicca, Druidism, and other revivals of Pagan traditions. (Witches are found in the U.S. too, with an estimated 1.2 million people following Pagan beliefs.)
Majak shared a few of these “women of power” with us. Check out more of her work at the Porter Contemporary Gallery.
Over 90% of Poland is Catholic. Because of the country’s conservative values, many women pursue witchcraft and other pagan traditions as an outlet for an alternative spirituality.
