Princesses can’t seem to catch a break these days. People are poo-poo-ing Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog”; they’re criticizing princesses not only for raising passive human dolls, but for turning those kids into spoiled little brats; even guys, who normally don’t pay attention to this stuff, have had enough with all this princess crapola. And you won’t hear us complaining (we’ll take Buffy over Beauty any day). Our favorite of these princess digs is photographer Dina Goldstein‘s work-in-progress called “Fallen Princess,” a series which places fairy tale characters in modern day scenarios: “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.” There’s Snow White up to her elbows in kids, Rapunzel after chemo and, our favorite, Cinderella in a dive bar drowning her sorrows in a glass of what we really, really hope is cheap whiskey.
