Fallen Princesses

Artist Dina Goldstein’s Fallen Princesses project was inspired by her young daughters’ fascination with Disney princesses. Going back to the origins of fairy tales, and exploring work by the Brothers Grimm, she was struck by how much Disney has removed all the dark aspects of the traditional tales to create sanitized versions that always have a happy ending. Goldstein began to imagine the fairy tale heroines placed into real life negative situations, affected by modern day issues: addictions, obesity, self-image problems etc. 

The result are these fabulous photos – I just love Cinderella in the dive bar!
