Dina Goldstein is a visual artist based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She is a photographer and pop-surrealist with a background in documentary photography. Goldstein creates tableaus with a nuanced visual language that places the mundane and everyday in unusual settings to inspire insight into the human condition.
She is most known for her series Fallen Princesses, created in 2007, depicting humanized Disney Princesses placed in realistic, modern scenarios. The series envisions how the lives of these famous characters might have played out in the real world if they had to endure such everyday scourges as poverty, obesity, cancer, and pollution. For this work, Goldstein was awarded the Arte Laguna special prize in 2012. In 2014, Goldstein won the grand prize at Prix Virginia, and her work was exhibited in Paris, France.
