Settimio Benedusi for Uovo Magazine captures a deep and controversial subject in a rather stylish way. His editorial deals with suicidal acts from hanging and falling to pill popping and bathtub drownings. Although the images could be considered very shocking, there is fragility to them that have nothing to do with the fashion. Instead, the Italian photographer manages to capture the beauty of the models even in their lifeless poses.

Quietly cinematic, Settimio Benedusi for Uovo Magazine focuses on the immediate moments just after the death occurs. Shot predominantly indoors, the photo shoot is hauntingly beautiful. Entirely romanticized, the editorial leaves people wondering why these gorgeous creatures have committed such a sad and desperate act.
