Recently my sister came to stay with me for awhile and helped me to revive this photo project that had gone dormant due to a variety of external factors (like the pandemic). In a way, our photoshoot together was a culmination of our years of sisterhood and also what I wanted to achieve with this Goddess photo series. We collaborated on every aspect of the photoshoot from the props, to the wardrobe, and spent evenings crafting together in order to bring elements of the goddess to life.
For her patron, my sister chose the Welsh goddess Modron. She is a mother goddess figure associated with fertility and the early days of Autumn. Modron is the mother of Mabon – the god of the Autumnal Equinox. She is also a daughter of Avalon in Arthurian legend. Modron is often depicted as one of the faces of the triple Goddess in Celtic mythology, and we also photographed the darker face of Modron as Morrigan – a series I will post separately as we get closer to Samhain.
Modron is nurturing and generous, sharing her bounty with the world. However she is also powerful and fierce, she protects those she loves and is not to be crossed. She is a seeker, a wanderer who is always looking out for others. She brings life to the world, and to all those around her.
