As usual I have tried to create something a little bit different from the usual set of Whitby Goth Weekend Pictures you see from other photographers. As a resident Whitby Photographer I feel it important to also get a few pictures of the town into the set of images. My aim of the weekend has been to capture something elegant as well. To be honest Im a bit fed up of the exhibitionists trying to better each other year on year. Its beginning to loose its appeal and I think the shock factor has now long since been lost. Im shocked by nothing I see at the Goth Weekends these days, infact Im bored by much of what I see, such as crows on peoples heads and busty women with the asses on show. I was stood chatting to my daughter Chelsie who works in Marie Antoinette on Church Street, she was asking what I was looking for in terms of photographs today. I explained I wanted something beautiful, and elegant.

Whitby Goth Weekend Spring 2017
When you hear the word goth you might think of cultural icons like Robert Smith of the Cure , the death-obsessed Beetlejuice character Lydia Deetz , and the dark camp of Elvira. Goth is synonymous with wearing all black, reveling in melancholy, and celebrating the macabre. But it's also often incorrectly thought of as a subculture that's rooted in whiteness or comprised mostly of white people. Its influence has altered the landscape of pop music, fashion, and art. Almost 50 years later, contemporary goths embody the representation they yearned to see when they were younger. For them, beauty is a way to center marginalized voices and live their truth, a way to look beyond whiteness and uplift the many identities and histories that exist within the goth community, past and present. By doing so, they remind us that people of color have been a part of the scene since the very beginning—from Glorious Din's front man Eric Cope and the Cure's drummer Andy Anderson, to more recent icons like Princess Nokia and Light Asylum's Shannon Funchess to name a few—and that they are inarguably a part of its future. In celebration of that future and the legacy that precedes it, we asked 10 goths of color about the power of the goth aesthetic, their favorite products , beauty routines , and why diverse representation within the goth community matters to them. But I am here to tell you that there are plenty of darker skinned goths. Lemon also understands the versatility and drama that one can create with eye shadow and a bold eyeliner.
Gothic art was a style of medieval art that developed in Northern France out of Romanesque art in the 12th century AD, led by the concurrent development of Gothic architecture. It spread to all of Western Europe , and much of Southern and Central Europe , never quite effacing more classical styles in Italy. In the late 14th century, the sophisticated court style of International Gothic developed, which continued to evolve until the late 15th century. In many areas, especially Germany, Late Gothic art continued well into the 16th century, before being subsumed into Renaissance art. Primary media in the Gothic period included sculpture , panel painting , stained glass , fresco and illuminated manuscripts. The easily recognizable shifts in architecture from Romanesque to Gothic, and Gothic to Renaissance styles, are typically used to define the periods in art in all media, although in many ways figurative art developed at a different pace. The earliest Gothic art was monumental sculpture , on the walls of Cathedrals and abbeys. Christian art was often typological in nature see Medieval allegory , showing the stories of the New Testament and the Old Testament side by side. Saints' lives were often depicted. Images of the Virgin Mary changed from the Byzantine iconic form to a more human and affectionate mother, cuddling her infant, swaying from her hip, and showing the refined manners of a well-born aristocratic courtly lady.
