Examining the Mind of a Killer Through Food

Photography // Thursday, February 27, 2014
In Henry Hargreaves’s body of work “No Seconds,” he photographs the final meals requested by death row inmates which are paired with text describing the requested meal, the name of the criminal, and the crime he/she committed. Photographed in the style of a visual survey, each image appeals to a person’s desire to understand the inner workings of their criminal minds.
