The dark side of fairy tales
Photographer Thomas Czarnecki has posted a series called “From Enchantment to Down,” which puts a dark spin on Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, the Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and Pocahontas.
The eye-opening photos have a cruel, misogynistic feel to them. They present sinister endings for the beloved Disneyfied princesses.
Check out the series at his website.
Gizmodo has a good write-up and reader commentary as well.
