Photographer Dina Goldstein
created this eye-opening series of photographs of Disney Princesses fallen from grace. Here's the explanation of the concept...
"The series was out of deep personal pain, inspiring Dina to critically examine the “happily ever after” motif that we are spoon fed since childhood. The series creates metaphor out of the myths of fairy tales, forcing the viewer to contemplate real life: failed dreams, addiction, obesity, Cancer, the extinction of indigenous culture, pollution, war and the fallacy of chasing eternal youth. By embracing the textures and colors created by Walt Disney, which built a multi-billion dollar empire exploiting these fairy tales, Fallen Princesses exposes the consumerism that has negated the value of these ancient parables. The series was first exhibited in 2009, and gained much attention in the press and online. Today the Fallen Princesses are shown internationally and continue to go ‘viral’."
