Finding Ophelia

Shakespeare made real


The Starting Point

In Shakespeare’s tragedy, Ophelia is the inspirational muse that Hamlet is obsessioned on.

People are continuously looking for their object of desire. Once they’ve almost reached it, they disown and destroy it.

The Idea

The search of Ophelia is a journey made by different moments that everybody is on. We wanted to represent its all entirety, from the courtship to the departure.

During this research the character changes many times, also because of the surrounding society which makes both him and his object of desire become crazy.

The pictures have been shot in Milan in front of Cimitero Monumentale, a bucolic place that reminds Hamlet thanks to its sculptures and sinuous lines.
