I'm all about creative stuff

Ophelia’s Madness

The next one in my tragic lover’s series is Ophelia’s Madness. Shakespeare’s Ophelia loved Hamlet, but it wasn’t reciprocated. Not being able to get over him, she went mad and eventually drowned – maybe she committed suicide, maybe not. I’ve tried to show her state of mind in this madness – swirling wind, with her dress and hair flying – with a nod to elements in the play (flowers and water). I found a great location to shoot this in (it’s actually the same spot as Heathcliff’s Obsession, just facing the opposite way), behind the local soccer field.



Many thanks to my niece Anwen for allowing herself to be experimented on!
