The Untamed: Woodsy, Witchy Photography by Amanda Bullick

Amanda Bullick, Brutally Beautiful - Medicine Woman

Amanda Bullick is a Vancouver-based photographer, jewelry designer, and visual artist whose work centers around the “brutally beautiful”; bones, witches, magic, and the forest converge in a spectral aesthetic that contemplates the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. Her photographs seek to reclaim “the witch,” who is a female figure with dark implications in the modern imagination. However, as Bullick notes, there was a time when witches played vital roles in their communities, serving as “herbalists, gardeners, midwives, cooks, [and] body and energy workers.” By creating haunting images of women meeting in the woods with animal skulls as their emblems, Bullick links the power of feminine energy to the growth and flow of the natural world.
