Not So Happily Ever After: Fallen Princess



Dina Goldstein is a Jewish, Vancouver based photographer. Her Fallen Princess series stages Disney and Fairy Tale princesses focusing on the grimy side of life, depicting woman in various situations including envrionmental disaster, cancer treatment, war, weight gain, overwhelmed motherhood and the price of eternal beauty.



In Ms. Goldstein’s words:
These works place Fairy Tale characters in modern day scenarios. 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.


Do you love it? I do.

Wow. How interesting! This shows a real life spin on the imaginary and unrealistic we grow up hoping to be. I was Belle. Is that her in the last photo? Interesting.
