Courtney Brooke: The Witching Hour

In a world of darkness, there are still lights to give us hope, and some even consider femininity the solution for ecology and peace. The work of American photographer Courtney Brooke is an illustration of this movement. This conceptual artist has combines rock ‘n’ roll (she made the cover album of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club), fashion, conceptual photography. She is a curious creature also known as Lightwitch. The New England based artist is putting in parallel between nature and women. Full of subtlety and mystery, her images give a glimpse into female spirituality, that is to say, witchcraft. Evanescent models, shining in dark, natural, and urban landscapes conjure ancient powers.

Life and death are discussed with a clever discretion. Courtney Brooke’s work is a poetic in-between of New Romanticism and gothic art. Some of her models seem to be lone priestesses, ready to unleash their wisdom and power while others gather in covens, caught in a trance or spiritual possession. Inspired by folklore, mythology, and esotericism, the photographer grants visions of inner peace and independence.
