I was invited this past weekend to photograph a local playwright’s work. He is a fellow photographer who is gifted in many areas; film, music and words. It was a happenstance meeting in the camera department at a local big box store. He had told me about this play he had written and I decided I wanted to see it. I feel we need to support all local artists of every genre of art and this fit right into my beliefs.
The story of Ophelia takes place back in the slave trade era of our nation. It is a story of love, strength and beauty in a world that sometimes was anything but beautiful.
I really didn’t get to “see” the play in the tradition form, because I was trying to see it through my camera. I am never sure of what I capture until I get home and load the images. I will allow the photos to speak the rest of the story. (To view all the photos from this body of work please visit my facebook page at: Ophelia)
