A few months ago, when winter briefly re-appeared in the south of Sweden, I photographed my fellow witch and good friend Erzabeth Svedlund. She was, for an afternoon, Winter’s Ghost.
We are now in mid-summer and it was fine time for a reunion. Yesterday we met, with not much of an idea of what we were going to do, and only a few hours in which to conjure something magical. And conjure we did, in the forest less than five minutes from my front door.
When we create together, we often look to folklore and in this instance, we approached the idea of creating a Skogsfru (wood wife) using a floor length blonde wig as a prop, and little else. Here’s what we captured.
