Artist Astor Alexander‘s latest series looks at changing our perceptions of Disney princesses. No more stereotypically submissive women, Astor turns Disney princesses into badass noir characters. It’s a “stylish” crime genre, emphasizing cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. Noir fiction protagonists are usually self-destructive, dealing with a corrupt legal, political or other systems. Their stories often lead to lose-lose situations, too.
Astor has perfectly captured the aesthetic and atmosphere of the genre while preserving the distinct personalities of the princesses.
