Victorians used cemeteries and graveyards as parks! Families would gather near the graves of deceased family members for picnics and recreation. A far cry from the somber, mournful approach we take to such spaces now. We believe respectfully enjoying beautiful cemeteries (yes, even taking photos there) encourages the care and preservation of these places. Where even after ancestors die off memories of those that went before remain.

 Witches are a feminist symbol. Women were once the source of wisdom and healing in communities, you sought out a “wise woman” when ill or concerned, they were also the midwives. The patriarchy used the concept of a witch as a way to remove agency and power from women, taking them from their positions in the community and making them property and only responsible for producing babies. Punishing women who wouldn’t be oppressed with death.

The constant thrum of the city is like a great beast breathing. Swells of people fill the streets, and drain, and refill. Lights flicker and noise ebbs and flows around us.

For many of us here at the ‘Cult we came of age steeped in the heyday of Gothic culture. We were people who were always a little different than those around us, we blossomed in a scene that celebrated the strange, the macabre, and the shadowy. Goth has changed a lot since the 1990s. This shoot is a celebration of finding your People- however odd they may be.
