‘No Seconds’ by Henry Hargreaves

It’s well known that some death row inmates in the US are offered a special last meal. Photographer Henry Hargreaves became fascinated by this ” mix of the mundane and the extraordinary” and turned it into the ‘No Seconds’ project.

Hargreaves documented some of the states most infamous criminals last meals, ranging from the predictable lobster and steak to the eccentric to the end single olive. Here are a selection…
