Towards the Flood

The European Tour Group is performing Hamlet in Cambridge, London and across different European countries. This year Emma Blacklay-Piech is directing the show. We decided two do two Hamlet themed photoshoots: the first was a set of milk bath photos with Ophelia. Emma wanted something by the sea for the second photoshoot, so we took the train to King’s Lynn, and from there a cab to Brancaster Beach. The weather was overcast, but that was perfect for what we wanted, as the sea and the sky seemed to merge into an endless mass.

With us on the journey were Emma Blacklay-Piech, Sam Knights, Bethan Davidsson, Ashleigh Weir, Colin Rothwell and Mona Riewer. We also had some towels, lots of sandwiches and some candy.

I found this big puddle of water which was perfect for reflections. Only downside is that you have to lie right next to the edge of it in order to get the full reflection of Beth.

As Sam and Beth walked further out into the water I had to get rid of my shoes and socks as well, and follow them into the water. It was cold at first, but it did not take long to get used to the cold water.

This beach was full of curious and friendly dogs.
