What Dina Goldstein Has to Do with Snow Whites Failed Marriage
Better stop believing in happily ever after...
Fempire 16 Aug 2018

Visual Artist, Vancouver

Snow White’s unhappy marriage, a drunken Cinderella or a Rapunzel with cancer diagnosis: The cynical works of Dina Goldstein highlight the challenges that modern women are facing.

Goldstein’s career in photography started with photojournalism and documentary work, followed by commissioned works for magazines and advertising agencies and her first public exhibition was Images of Gaza in 2001.
Her Fallen Princess series is one of her iconic series, inspired by raising her daughter and battling her mothers disease.

‘The two events collided and made me wonder what a princess would look like if she had to battle a disease, struggle financially or deal with aging,’ Goldstein stated in a former interview.

Leaning into the visual language of pop surrealism, Goldstein stages narrative compositions that expose the reality of modern life, challenging the notions of beauty, gender, sex and religion.

The photographer wishes, her thought-provoking images will stir the emotions of viewers and also engage to reflect real life struggles – like a mirror for adults, being supported in life, witnessing that princesses struggle, too.
