Never assume that anything is as perfect as it seems.
Take Barbie and Ken, for example. For decades they’ve been among the world’s most beautiful couples. But the cracks in the facade have always been there. Like, why can’t fickle Barbie commit to just one career, for example? Is Ken even into women? Is Skipper a third wheel in their marriage?
Photographer Dina Goldstein’s young daughter recently started playing with Barbie dolls, which made her wonder how Ken “struggles with his position in the household and faces his lack of authenticity.” Not to mention how he’s surely “grappling with his sexuality and finds himself in a loveless marriage.”
Take a look Goldstein’s “In the Dollhouse” and see how the dream house much more closely resembles a nightmare:
