THE VISIBLE AND THE INVISIBLE
Over the years, Rik Garrett found the historical connections between his seemingly divergent interests: the medium of photography being married to esoteric studies throughout history via spirit photography, thoughtography, Radionics and Parapsychology. Drawing on the historical precedent of the apparently static realm of analog photography having been used to document the invisible, further studies caused him to dedicate himself to exploring the liminal realms between supposed opposites: documented reality and fantasy, science and the occult, visible and invisible, past and future. Long-term fixations on the subjects of witchcraft, feminine archetypes and humankind’s relationship with nature led to the Earth Magic series, photographed with the wet plate collodion process.
