Get Dressed: Pagan Style

Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 12.15.22 PM

Can we skip this whole end of summer thing, jump past autumn, do not pass Go/ do not collect $200, and head straight over to winter please? Because this photo series over on Bad Panda is giving me a serious case of wintery fashion inspiration. From the website:

  • “For two years, French photographer Charles Fréger has been traveling throughout 19 European countries and trying to capture the spirit of what he calls “tribal Europe” in his “Wilder Mann” series. What he found was a huge array of pagan rituals, mainly related to the winter solstice and spring renewal, focusing on the common myth of the “wild man.” Read more/ogle amazing photos here!

*They’ve some how super protected the photos from downloading (with pagan powers??), so forgive the shoddy screen cap above.

  1. In 1994 I saw a show by Toronto sculptor Spring Hurlbut called The Ritual Scream at the Dunlop that explored the pagan roots of some familiar architectural motifs like columns (which symbolized trees in forests where pagan ceremonies were once held) and the dentil moulding atop neo-classical buildings (which symbolized the remnants of animal sacrifices like teeth and horns).

    It was a show that really stuck with me. Here’s a link to a review I did for the Montreal mag Espace
