The Hierophant is the 5th card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot Deck. In the traditional Rider Waite tarot, which is the most well-known deck, The Hierophant represents an established set of values and beliefs and is often correlated with religion and other formal spiritual doctrines.
In my re-working of the image, The Hierophant represents more of the reversed attributes of the card. There are many invisible labours behind the staging of the photograph from gathering of materials to referencing images of spiritual mediums and shamans from a wide range of belief systems.
The Hierophant (2019) Commissioned by the Friends of Hospitalfield, this work was the proof for an edition of 60 photopolymer etchings of which there are 28/60 available to purchase.
