German magazine features "Morbidity & Mortality" photographs

The German women’s magazine, Barbara, features Jeanette May’s “Morbidity & Mortality” photographic series in issue #31, November 2018. The magazine aims to be smarter and funnier than the typical women’s magazine. The theme for this issue is “death,” so May’s photos of pet toys as murder victims fits perfectly.
