I first featured Dina Goldstein and her
Fallen Princess- Not So Happily Ever After series. This Vancouver based photographer's In The Doll House project examines the not so idyllic life of Barbie and Ken. Stuck in a loveless marriage Ken is clearly grappling with his sexuality as Barbie comes to terms with the crumbling relationship.
The photos were shot over a long weekend and the set was designed with the help of volunteers. The models, made to look like dolls do a fantastic job of creating expressionless faces while showing so much emotion. The set is presently in storage and will be set up at the gallery opening of the show.
I just love Dina Goldstein work!
Did you play with Barbies as a kid? In the story lines you made up was Barbie's life idyllic?
