SISTERS GRIMM — Miwa Yanagi’s Fairytale

by Samantha Anne Carrillo

 

Kyoto-based photographer Miwa Yanagi explores the world of women. In her 2004 series Fairytale, Yanagi’s subjects are girls and young women, many of whom wear crones’ faces and act out interpretations of Japanese stories, Grimm’s Fairy Tales — like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, and Cinderella — and Gabriel García Márquez’s Erendira. Her Gothic horror and film noir-infused aesthetic and narrative choices venture into pretty dark and twisty regions of the human psyche, exploring age, beauty, and femininity.

    Resurgence of interest in the originals. Think the television show “Grimm”. I remember reading the originals as a child….then of course they were cleaned up as too horrible for children, and yet their original purpose was to caution children against grim happenings.
