11 Disturbing Photos That Show What Death Row Criminals Had For Their Last Meals

Photographer Henry Hargreaves recreated some of the strangest last meal request of death row criminals.

Given the chance to choose your final meal before you die, what food will you have on your plate?

While that sounds like a cheesy yet a bit morbid question, it is actually a real-life dilemma that some people have to deal with. Imprisoned criminals who have been sentenced to die by execution are typically given the chance to pick their last meal.

Along with a few key details about each convicted criminal, the images below will show you what they requested to eat before they were executed.

It’s actually interesting and a bit creepy at the same time.

Scroll down and see for yourself:

Of course, these photos are not of the actual food consumed by the death row criminals. These are recreations by photographer Henry Hargreaves in a series collection called “No Seconds.”

On his website, he shared what inspired him to do this project:

“In my photography I have always been fascinated by the mix of the mundane and the extraordinary. So I while was reading about efforts to stop the Last Meal tradition in Texas it sparked my interest. In the most unnatural moment there is (state sponsored death) what kind of requests for food had been made?… I felt it could be a really interesting idea to try to represent visually. Researching this topic strangely personalized these people for me and for a moment was able to identify with them through the common denominator of food.”
