Dina Goldstein’s Photo Series “Fallen Princesses” Shows Disney Icons Facing Modern Problems
You may remember Dina Goldstein’s 2011 Barbie themed series, “In the Dollhouse,” which took a look into the marriage of Barbie and Ken. Digging further back, I stumbled upon her 2009 series, “Fallen Princesses,” and fell in love.
In Fallen Princesses, Dina takes iconic characters like Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood and places them into modern situations. What results is a series that hits on everyday topics and problems ranging from poverty and pollution to obesity and cancer.
While all Dina’s photos are well executed, it was her look at cancer featuring Rapunzel that struck me most. The image is beautifully simple, and at the same time is a stark reminder of the devastating effects of cancer.
