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