Shanghai Poster Girls with celebrity photographer, Dina Goldstein

Last month, Griffin and Wong had the honor of being invited into the studio of internationally known photographer, Dina Goldstein, to produce the backdrops for her most recent photo series “Modern Girl”. Dina rose to fame with her earlier series, “Fallen Princesses” and “In the Doll House“.

Her most recent project tackles the contradictions of China’s recent rise to wealth, and the clash of values and culture that give texture to the life of the modern Chinese girl – especially those who have immigrated to the US and Canada.

The project shows 10 sets of portraits, one of which is a recreation of a Shanghai advertising poster from the 1930s, and the second accompanying image is the same girl photographed as she is today, the modern girl. Dina wanted to use advertising to relay a message of commercialization, and the impact it has on all cultures. The hallmark of Dina’s work is often a striking beauty in form, that also challenges the perceptions and cultural norms that are spoon-fed to us by advertising, religion and fairy tales.
