After a month of teasers and much ado, Catland's 2016 calendar is finally printed! Featuring all of your favorite Catland house staff and many of your favorite readers, this calendar is the first in what promises to be a fun, fascinating annual tradition.
Only 25 copies have been printed in this premiere run, which surround the themes of major occult archetypes. From the Gatekeeper, to the Huntress, to the Holy Whore, this project explores and animates these themes while leaving them intact within their esoteric mysteries
Catland's 2016 calendar was shot and edited by photographer Dmitri Wildfong-Nishman, a Brooklyn based artist who works with many other local performances spaces, such as Bizarre Bushwick, St. Vitus, and The Cobra Club. Over the course of two chilly days in the Catland event space, Dmitri breathed new life into these timeless archetypes.
Working alongside Dmitri was Catland's own Dakota Hendrix. In addition to being an established reader at the shop, Dakota is a successful makeup artist and has been for several years. They worked tirelessly with our models to craft unique looks for each scene, enlivening these timeless personas with color and drama.
This first calendar run features detailed monthly moon cycles, large astrological observances, feast days, Roman festivals, and many, many more holidays. The spellbinding photos feature local Brooklyn witches and mystics, who were invited to fully embody these powerful & ancient personas, if only for a few, brief moments.
Please call or visit the shop to get yours before they're all gone!
