Dead man Walking with Henry Hargreaves

*sings* How do you like your eggs in the morning? I like mine with a kiss… boiled or fried? I’m satisfied as long as I get my kiss da da doo doo

Photographer Henry Hargreaves recreated these last suppers requested by nine death row inmates hours before they were executed (pretty grim huh?) but I guess some of you wouldn’t mind a bite! Cheeky! 

One inmate, Victor Feguer, 28, simply requested a single un-pitted olive – presented on a huge ceramic plate and accompanied with a knife and fork. In contrast, Ronnie Lee Gardener – who was killed by firing squad in Utah – watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy as he wolfed down a lobster tail, steak, apple pie and vanilla ice cream! What a  way to go hey!

Henry Hargreaves , from Brooklyn, New York, said: “When you read about the death row inmates they were just names and statistics.

“But once I found out about what they ate as their last meal they began to come to life, I could see a little corner of their personality.”

John Wayne Gacy opted for fried chicken, shrimp, chips and strawberries
