The Witch Wave

#86 - Darla Teagarden, Phantasmagorical Photographer

Darla Teagarden is a self-taught artist and mixed media photographer with a phantasmagoric, otherworldly bent. She creates portraits (most often self-portraits, either faceless or in-character) in theatrical vignettes handcrafted out of wood, paper, chalk, and plaster, and which are rife with sacred symbols and occult imagery. Her widely celebrated work has been exhibited in galleries including Roq La Rue (Seattle), Last Rites (NYC), and The Convent (Philadelphia) and it has been published in magazines and books including Black Forest (Candela Books, 2014) and Series of Dreams (Skeleton Key Press, 2018). Altars, her glorious first monograph, is out now.

On this episode, Darla discusses the therapeutic effect of fantastical imagery, her many magical mentors, and why photography is the weirdest medium of all.

Pam also talks about having a mature belief in magic, and answers a listener question about witchcraft and the wellness community.
