Dorota Gorecka pays tribute to one of the most tragic scenes in a Shakespearean work: the drowning of Ophelia. This innocent soul couldn't keep up with the rigors of real life and this is captured stunningly in the photo series. Wearing a flowing white dress with a crown of flowers adorning her head, this Ophelia stares off into the distance as she awaits for the inevitable to happen.

Surrounded by water lilies and other vegetation, Dorota Gorecka's Ophelia is a vision that will inspire people to re-read the play (or perhaps read it for the first time in general). Although the images have a traditional air about them, Dorota Gorecka does introduce a modern edge that many women would love to recreate for their summer wardrobes.
