LA-based photographer Tony Ross is helping us visualize it by depicting iconic disney princesses as majestic queens. He had the princess models call in their moms to pose as the mythical matriarchs. The results were a royal success.
Indeed, the youthful glow of each princess juxtaposed with the dignified elegance of their mature counterparts creates a stunning contrast.
The gorgeous costumes worn in the shoot were supplied by Nephi Garcia, a designer acclaimed for his collection of Disney-inspired children’s outfits.
The photo series powerfully reflects on the relationship between youth and aging, as well as between mother and child. As the young woman is now, the older woman once was, and as the older woman is now, the young woman will become. Both generations are equally beautiful.
