Postcards with motifs from my occult/nature inspired Genii Locorum series. The postcards have round edges and the sizes comply with common post standards.
This is a new series featuring liminal places, around which legends are woven and to which certain spirits or energies may be connected. This series also includes places that simply felt powerful in the moment of photographing.
“Birth of Aphrodite” shows the place, where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the foam of the sea and began her journey to Mount Olympus on Cyprus. It is believed that swimming at full moon 10 times around Her rock, would make one 10 years younger.
“Stormy Sea at Night” is a moment captured during our last evening Crete. It shows a pier near the port of Malia, a place frequented by tourists during the summer months. However, nearby is an excavation sight, where remains of an ancient and yet undeciphered scripture as well as relics of early worship have been found. The moment at the pier, as the waves of the dark sea kept clashing against and over it, reminded of a portal to another world and age.
Use these cards to send out love and deliver handwritten charms to your loved ones and friends.
Please leave a note with your order, if you wish for the postcard to be signed on the back (no extra cost).
