I happened to like them.

"These works place Fairy Tale characters in modern day scenarios. In all of the images the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. The '...happily ever after' is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues."

I do not see them as "twisted fairy tales".

For me the strongest image was Rapunzel. Hair is something of an identity. Who is Rapunzel without her hair? She is no one.

Being half Middle Eastern (though not Afgani), I actually find the Jasmine piece rather interesting as it juxtaposes two stereotypes the west has of middle east, that is of the magical orient and the terrorist filled wastes. The other pieces are also quite interesting, though more of a commentary on American marriages.

Wow, that girl really looks like Jasmine. Anyhoo, agree with others, too depressing. Plus, the twisted fairytale thing's been overdone. Sometimes I get really sick of people looking back on childhood ideas and fantasies and going "that isn't the real world - this is the real world," and then painting a completely cynical view of the world. Anyways, I'm rambling...

I do like the Jasmine one, she looks badass.
