As promised, I’m shooting multiples of the Tarot cards I’m creating, the Empress is the first one to have two so far, view the other version of the card here.
It was a real pleasure to shoot this card, with a new angle, and different power and attitude. This shoot we knew which photo would be the Tarot card almost immediately, just like we did on the Tower shoot with Teddy. It gives me shivers when this happens. There was a wee kitty around the house who I thought might join the shoot as many of the other pets/ animals have in other shoots, but she decided not to – here is a silly video I made of her behind the scenes anyway – thanks Miss Molly.
This card has not been re-named as Kristina resonates with the traditional name for it. Thanks so much for sharing, participating and telling your story.
3. The Empress – Kristina
Reminder, if you also want to shoot YOUR perspective on a card that has been created you can! I will be producing a tarot deck with multiples of quite a few cards to share different stories and perspectives of our beautiful community
Just because a card has been shot, does not mean we can’t create a second one. If you resonate or connect with a particular card, then I would love to shoot it with you. The final deck may contain multiples of some cards to ensure diverse story telling and inclusion of as broad a spectrum of the Queer community as possible
