Henry Hargreaves, of New Zealand, was fascinated with the last meals of death row inmates. He decided to recreate the last meals of some of the most infamous executed prisoners for a photo series he titles “No Seconds”
Henry and his friend cooked the meals, but had a hard time eating them. Not because of how eery the project was though.
It was kind of like going to a hospital and eating the lunch of someone who’s just been pronounced dead.
Henry first found interest in the last meals while he was reading about a campaign to abolish the last meal in Texas. As he researched it he felt that, through the food they ordered, he could identify with these people, for just a moment.
So what would Henry eat?
Honestly, I think if I found myself in that position, I don’t think I could eat anything. I can barely eat breakfast before an exam. If I was on death row, I think food would be the last thing on my mind.
If you had to choose one last meal, what would you choose?
