Henry Hargreaves Takes Super Creepy Photographs of Death Row Inmates' Last Meals

Henry Hargreaves Takes Super Creepy Photographs of Death Row Inmates' Last Meals

We have talked about Henry Hargreaves and his fascination of using food in art a few times before. However, his "No Seconds" photograph series is a standout. For the project, he recreates the last meals of various serial killers on death row.

The series is really eerie, with many meals offering a look into their deranged minds. For instance, Timothy McVeigh only wanted mint ice cream as his final supper. John Wayne Gacy wanted KFC because he had been a manager of three KFC restaurants prior to conviction. It's rare for a piece of fried chicken to freak you out.

He said of his project: "I was reading about a campaign to abolish the last meal in Texas, so I went online and researched it. And as I was reading through these records, I felt that I could identify with these people for a brief moment just from what they ordered."
