Fallen Princesses Photo Exhibit

July 6, 2009 · Print This Article

Vancouver based photographer Dina Goldstein‘s new series Fallen Princesses takes a look at the classic fairy tale heroines of our youth from the vantage point of our later years and finds things not exactly as we remember them.

“As a young girl, growing up abroad, I was not exposed to Fairy tales. These new discoveries lead to my fascination with the origins of Fairy tales. I explored the original brothers Grimm’s stories and found that they have very dark and sometimes gruesome aspects, many of which were changed by Disney. I began to imagine Disney’s perfect Princesses juxtaposed with real issues that were affecting women around me, such as illness, addiction and self-image issues.”

The series goes on exhibit in October.
