Fairytale Prisoner by Choice


Everyone has an eye, whether or not we see ourselves as photographers. What we choose to photograph and how we frame subjects always reveals a little about how we perceive the world. For someone like Melania, media-trained, controlled and cloistered, her collection of Twitter photography provides an otherwise unavailable view into the reality of her existence. Nowhere else — certainly not in interviews or public appearances — is her guard so far down.

What is that reality? She is Rapunzel with no prince and no hair, locked in a tower of her own volition, and delighted with the predictability and repetition of her own captivity… More at Medium.

A fascinating article on many levels. It sort of worries me that the author is presuming the motives and emotions behind her photography, but to be fair it is well written and does make a lot of sense.

Melania is an enigma and we will likely never know the full story behind her marriage, her private thoughts and why on earth she married you know who (besides the financial prospects).
