dina goldstien: fallen princesses

says photogapher dina golstein:

The project was inspired by my observation of three-year-old girls, who were developing an interest in Disney's 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.

hm... so it's art photography by an art photographer. but without looking at the last two images above, i would've mistaken the intent for nothing more than digital-age spoofery. but then i am neither a fairy tale character nor a princess. any thoughts from the ladies?

Photo no. 5 is Sleeping Beauty, right?
I heard na she woke up from her baby not because of the kiss of the prince.
Ganito daw kasi yan, while Sleeping Beauty was enchanted to sleep, lotsa men fucked her. And then,nabuntis siya.
And then after 9 months, she gave labor, pero tulog mantika pa din si Sleeping Beauty. And then, dahil mahilig mag-suck ang mga babies, na-suck ng baby niya ung finger nya. Ayun, nagising na si Sleeping Beauty. haha! wasak! :D

Kaya siguro ganyan ang picture. Parang she's being raped.

asteeg., Fairy Tales were really intended for adults.
