A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.

Sometimes Prince Charming is really just a pansy-ass that still lives in his parent's basement; more concerned about raiding your fridge for all the beer than rescuing you from your dreary 9-5 dungeon job complete with a Wicked Witch of a boss.

The Grimm brothers knew better.

Dina Goldstein wasn't raised on the sugar-saturated Disney versions of Princesses whose slippers always fit just right and singing chipmunks helped sew ball gowns.

It wasn't until she was older than she saw young girls obsessing over these stories where victimized beauties are relieved from their grief only through aid of a bold, dashing, young prince!

So she did what any good woman would do. She grabbed her camera.

"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." - Dina
