The Fallen Princess Project

Dina Goldstein is the master mind behind the Fallen Princess Project which places Fairy Tale characters into modern day scenarios.  Rather than each character living their 'happily ever after' the artist addresses conflict by representing each tale as though it were a current day issue.

Inspiration for the project was drawn from Brothers Grimm stories which were adapted by Disney with the expulsion of the dark and gruesome details from which they originated.  The artist then took Disney's perfect Princesses and displayed them side by side for comparison with real issues that affect women such as illness, addiction and self-image.
