Photo Series Reveals The Last Meals Of Death Row Inmates

To an inmate waiting for the inevitable conclusion to their sentence, namely death by one of the five legal methods of execution, their last meal is guaranteed to be the best thing to happen to them since they were sent to death row.

Photographer Henry Hargreaves finds the whole practice of public execution to be "a remnant of an earlier era", which compelled him to recreate the last meals ordered by notorious death row inmates like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy and Timothy McVeigh, photographing the recreated meal next to a card that details info about each prisoner.

Each meal says something about the man who placed the order, and whether they used it to make a profound statement or simply wanted one last chance to chow down the meal will go down in history as part of their dark and mordid story.
