Ophelia Inspired Photo shoot

These series of images were inspired by the iconic painting by Sir John Everett Millais 1851 called Ophelia. The painting itself is depicts a famous scene from Shakespeare's play Hamlet when Ophelia is singing to herself before she drowns herself.

I love this painting as it shows beauty in such a morbid situation which could have been approached in such a different and more melancholic light. My images I hope capture the same ideas and effect. I took these images with a modern angle to show the aesthetic images of the 19th century can resinate to now.
