Active Ritual is a portrait series created by Chris Corridore. The images are digitally painted in Photoshop and takes inspiration from styles in the Victorian Era. This time period was chosen because of societies fascination with witchcraft and the occult at the that time. It's a twist of the occult meets Disney princesses.
This story tells of three young girls of three distinct origins. Cerulean, the fair skinned beauty of a wealthy and prestigious political family. Citrine, the charming farmers daughter from the countryside, and Crimson, the quiet yet strange orphan girl raised by the city streets. These three girls from three different worlds share something special, something many may not understand or even fear, but it is something wonderful all in its own. The gift of endless possibilities. The gift of Magic. Together, they live lives shrouded in mystery, keeping their lips sealed of the knowledge they hold and sleeping with one eye open. Together, they seek to understand their true purpose and harness the greatness within them, but it is a fine line they walk, for being caught would mean a tragic end. It's a secret bound in darkness, a hope as bright as the full moon, and a path of great uncertainty. This, is Active Ritual.
