The Fallen Princesses series first appeared on the Internet in the summer of 2009 proto #MeToo , and received global attention as artworks that comments critically on the Disney world narrative. Goldstein’s work raises many questions about the lives women are expected to lead and the reality of what their lives are really like. Dina’s photos feature subtle, comic, and grotesque images that undo classical fairy-tale narratives and expose some of the negative results that are rarely discussed in public.

There are several beaches that can be enjoyed throughout East, West, North, South Vancouver and its outer areas. They don’t look like any other beaches in the world mainly because of large logs, which have been purposefully positioned, although look shipwrecked amongst the sand. The beaches themselves take on the character of their neighborhood and gain a reputation that is a reflection of their inhabitants.

Recently, Paris’s Musée d’Orsay Orangie included Dina Goldstein’s ‘Haircut’ in their catalogue Frida Kahlo / Diego Rivera Art in Fusion, recognizing the tribute to Kahlo’s “Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair” in a Dollhouse portrait of Barbie.
I photographed the first of the Princesses, Cinder in 2007. With a very limited budget I managed to collect a very talented cast and crew, and with volunteer help I continued to create the next 9 pieces. I realized the project in 2010. I first exhibited the Fallen Princesses in 2009. The show did not include Pocahauntas, which I had to completed later… I just had my second baby, Zoe (2009) so I took a bit of a break. During that time I shared them on JPG.com and shortly after that they were distributed on the internet . The initial response to the series was overwhelming and exciting. I received hundreds of emails and letters (they used to send letters back then). People poured out their hearts and shared intimate stories with me. I was very touched. I was featured in over 300 online publications and 100 Printed magazines and newspapers. I also reluctantly made several TV and documentary appearances. The work has been exhibited in public galleries and museums internationally. In 2010 I was approached by a well known director to create a Fallen Princesses TV series. …. That didn’t end up happening. However many other Fairytale based films and shows were later produced. It was Zeitgeist. In 2010 I published the Fallen Princesses book which is a compilation of essays, interviews, letters, online discussion and secrets about the project. I also created a Box Set that includes a signed book and an 8X10 print / 100 editions in total. In 2011 I debuted my second large scale project ‘In The Dollhouse’, it too was popular online. My next project ‘Gods of Suburbia’ is in the works. Fallen Princesses remains a bit of a phenomenon and has a large, dedicated, and passionate following. FACEBOOK PAGE The project went ‘viral’ again in 2011 and made it’s Facebook share premier. Which brings me to the most current wave of Fallen Princesses mania. Please take a look at some of these links. More interviews will be added in the next few days. Currently I’m enjoying my new studio near the funky Commercial Drive Area. I’m connecting with collectors and galleries, developing promising relationships. I’m celebrating 20 years as a photographer this year and will participate in Capture Photography Festival with both a retrospective exhibition ‘XX’ and ‘In The Dollhouse’. And of course I’m spending some incredibly beautiful Vancouver summer days with my family. Jonas, Jordan and Zoe..and Taco the dog.
