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.
