Event description

Description

The word “Witch” elicits many opinions and visual references often inspired by old folk tales, Hollywood depictions, and tainted historical events. But what does it mean to be a Witch today?


Witches of Vancouver: Coming out of the Broom Closet
” is a photo-documentary series by local photographer, Jessie Robertson Photography. Through interviews and portraits, eleven Vancouver based self-identified Witches speak candidly about their paths, and what it was like to come out of the ‘broom closet’ in a society that still often shutters at the word, “Witch”.

Jessie Robertson has been a practicing Witch for over 20 years, and a Photographer for almost as long. In that time, she experienced many different reactions from people when she would come out as a Witch. In more recent years, Jessie has had the honour of meeting and conversing with a variety of Witches; all of whom expressed individual paths and connections to the word "Witch". The inspiration for "Witches of Vancouver: Coming out of the Broom Closet” came from those engaging conversations.

What’s next for Witches of Vancouver?
Jessie's photo series inspired filmmakers Luvia Petersen and Derek Langer to adapt the idea into a documentary (to be released in 2020). With many misconceptions around the word "Witch", this series hopes to shine a light on this mysterious and misunderstood subculture.
