Eye Candy: Fairy Tales Can Come True…
Fairy tales would have you believe that every princess has a happy ending, but one photographer’s striking series challenges that notion.
Fallen Princesses, a project by Vancouver, Canada-based photographer Dina Goldstein, shows Snow White, Jasmine, Pocahontas and other iconic characters succumbing to tragic fates including cancer, alcoholism and unhappy marriages.
‘My Fallen Princesses series was born out of deep personal pain, when I raged against the “happily ever after” motif we are spoon fed since childhood,’ explains the Tel Aviv, Israel-born photographer.
