Photographer Uses Disney Princesses To Bring Real-Life Issues To Light

Isn’t it true that we expect Disney princesses to live happily ever after? Maybe it’s because that’s what Disney wants us to think when they create romantic love tales and lofty goals and ambitions in their films. But have you ever considered that princesses like Tiana, Jasmine, or Snow White may suffer what kind of challenges and have what type of dark aspects if they live in our modern world?

Shannon Dermody, a 20-year-old photographer from upstate New York, chose to investigate concerns such as domestic abuse and pollution that Disney princesses could experience if they lived in current times. “Each photo shows a different problem that is going on in the world. I want people to not look away from these problems. They do exist.” – Dermody once shared.

Hey, they might shock you, but trust me, this is what we – humans – need to see. Read to the end and don’t forget to share with us which photo you’re most impressed with!

#1 Domestic Abuse

This is definitely the photo that impressed me the most in this series. Belle from Beauty And The Beast is used to convey a message that: domestic violence can happen to anyone – even if you are a princess! Always know how to protect yourself, girls!

#2 Heroin

It’s scary how princess Merida from Brave is now using drugs, showing the sad truth that today’s young people are looking for drugs a lot…

#3 Tobacco

The beautiful princess Jasmine from Aladdin in the real world is involved in tobacco – an extremely dangerous yet popular addition.

#4 Sex Trafficking

Our dearest Cinderella has to fight sex trafficking – a problem that has plagued us for a long time but has never been completely solved.

#5 Pollution

What a horrible photo! Even mermaids are covered in the garbage! Ocean pollution is really alarming and we need to take action NOW to save our beautiful Ariel.

#6 Rape

One of the most shocking photos when Princess Aurora has to face rape in real life… This makes me feel like this world is not safe for women.

#7 Alcoholism

When the world gets harsher, individuals seem to drink to relieve themselves a lot. The photographer has been incredibly skilled when utilizing Snow White to raise awareness about alcoholism.
