The magical 'Book of Shadows' photography series by Amelia Bauer is inspired by 17th century witch lure. With the help of an extremely talented floral designer named Elizabeth Parks Kibbey, Bauer was able to create these hauntingly beautiful floral captures.

When designing these stunning sculptures, Kibbey used plants and flowers that were thought to be used for witchcraft in the past. Some were thought to have healing powers, while others were used for more spiritual purposes. Kibbey elegantly puts these powerful plants together in a way that seems almost like magic.

The vibrant colors of these supernatural plants and flowers are further exaggerated by the colored lighting the artist used while photographing them. Some of these gorgeous floral designs look purple and pink, while others look extremely blue or yellow.

These creative floral stills are eerily captivating.
