Disney Princesses Meet The Real World
Monday, July 06, 2009 | Author: Mad Typist
I encourage all of you to go over to JPG Magazine and check out this brilliant photo essay by Dina Goldstein entitled "Fallen Princesses." In it, Goldstein uses models to simulate the intersection of the real world with the idea of a fairy tale princess. Here's a sample shot from the series:


In the article, Goldstein notes:
"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"
Check it out. Simply amazing (the Rapunzel one is particularly haunting).
