Not So Happily Ever After
Warning, the following series of photos may traumatize the memories of your cherished fairy tale princesses. Conceptual photographer Dina Goldstein created a series called “Fallen Princesses” to challenge the idea of happily-ever-after with real world problems.
“The series created metaphor out of the myths of fairy tales, forcing the viewer 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.”-Dina Goldstein
Seeing these fairy tale characters in their darkest times is disheartening, but Dina Goldstein has done a great job portraying realistic everyday versions of these iconic characters. Although these 10 images show tragedy in the lives of these once joyous princesses, there is subtle humor to be found that keeps it all somewhat light. Can you tell which princess is which?
