A Voix de Femmes on chante "La mort d'Ophélie" de Berlioz. C'est très beau et fanstasmagorique...

I've always felt a bond with Ophelia...maybe it's our love for flowers.

Thanks for these pictures!

c'est curieux, moi aussi ce thème m'a toujours beaucoup interpelée...dans des tableaux divers que j'ai vu au gré des musées !!!
mais en photo, le thème me paraît plus glauque et plus préocupant...
je ne voudrais pas que cela t'obsède, ma Bouezette.

The pictures are quite creepy but at the same time really beautiful and touching.

C'est particulièrement interessant ta vision "animale" du thème... Souhaites tu la photo de quand on a trouvé Nini dans la piscine ???

Tu sais qui ;-)

Truly a fantastic series! I came across this when I was searching for a picture of Millais's Ophelia. Here is another one for your collection, from Tom Hunter's "Life and Death in Hackney" series: http://www.tomhunter.org/html/tld_07.htm

Until May 24 2009 you can see this at the P.R.B. exhibition at Nationalmuseum.
