Dina Goldstein’s Fallen Princesses

I really love this series by Canadian photographer Dina Goldstein. It’s called Fallen Princesses and depicts mostly Disney princesses after the fairy tale ends.

Dina’s photography is meant to, in her words, “evoke and wrest feelings of shame, anger, shock and empathy from the observer so as to inspire insight into the human condition.”

This certainly fits the bill.

Fallen Princesses was created to¬†force viewers “to contemplate real life: failed dreams, pollution and ocean degradation, war, obesity, the extinction of indigenous cultures, cancer and the fallacy of chasing eternal youth.”

Here are some of our favorites. You can see the full series and more from Dina here.
