This is a pretty nice series depicting female models in death throes due to commercial products.

Drop Dead Gorgeous, by Daniela Edburg
Death by Oreos, 2006
For anyone who has eaten the whole box, or bag, or carton the photographs in this series make light of our secret binges. Here, the consequences of indulgence are tabloid or monster movie deaths. Daniela Edburg’s Drop Dead Gorgeous
both mocks and satisfies our cravings.

Born in Houston in 1975, Daniela Edburg grew up in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She got her bachelor’s degree in visual arts from the National University in the excellence program at the San Carlos Academy in Mexico City, where she still lives and works.
Some images are part of the show ‘Bittersweet’ now showing at Kunsthaus Miami.
How did you come up with the idea for this series?
I wanted to do a series of remakes of my favorite paintings.
I decided to do [the reproductions] with photography instead and modified my thesis subject to be about the relationship between glamour and death.
[The work] is not a criticism it’s just an exaggeration of my own reality.
