Dina Goldstein's photo series Fallen Princesses revisits the origins of classic fairy tale heroines and finds things not exactly as we remember them from childhood tales. Click through for more.
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.
These images appeared in JPG Magazine, and Goldstein plans to add more before the entire series goes on exhibit in October.
