[QUOTE]A series of images from Vancouver photographer, Dina Goldstein, is creating quite a buzz online. Goldstein, a conceptual artist with a background in documentary photography, creates visual series that "place the mundane and everyday in unusual settings to inspire insight into the human condition."

"'Fallen Princesses' is an ironic look at children’s parables, from Grimm fairy tales to Walt Disney," She shared with Yahoo! Canada News. "By placing iconic characters such as Little Red Riding Hood or Snow White in modern situations, the series became a commentary on such everyday scourges as poverty, obesity, cancer and pollution."

“In the Dollhouse,” another one of her recognizable works, "is a series that plays out as a narrative, peeking into the home and marriage of the world’s most iconic dolls, Barbie, and her partner Ken. It offers a profound commentary on the transient nature of beauty, the difficulty of marriage and the importance of authenticity."

"These works have been recognized for their metaphorical and ironical messages, which transcends cultural borders and have sparked much conversation and accolades from academics, editors and bloggers around the world."
