Last Meals Of Death Row Inmates By Henry Hargreaves

Self-taught photographer Henry Hargreaves grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand. Before he started working as a full-time photographer Hargreaves always worked in the food industry and was fascinated about peoples requests and what they ordered said about their character and personality.

So he tried to bring this idea to his work by showing the connections visually. In his series ‘No Seconds’ Hargreaves captured the last meals of death row inmates. „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,“ remembers the photographer.
