Growing up, I was a big fan of Disney Princesses. Like most little girls I loved the idea of getting all dressed up and living in a castle. A project I recently stumbled upon called "Fallen Princesses" by Vancouver photographer Dina Goldstein places my beloved fairy tale characters in modern day scenarios. According to her website, in all of the images, the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. The '...happily ever after' is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues. Though I wholeheartedly believe in 'happily ever after's', I really appreciate the creativity behind this project. The pictures are quite stunning.
