Drop Dead Gorgeous






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. How about Death by Banana, Cotton Candy or Lifesavers or Slimfast or Gummies? If I have to die soon, I want to experience 'Death by Cake'. I could live with that.

oh... the cotton candy tornado - that would be a dream!

I love the vivid colors! (Reminds me of one of my new favorite tv shows that I hope doesn't get cancelled - Pushing Daisies.)
