  • What inmates ate before execution

    Before photographing the last meals of death row inmates, Hargreaves recreated them all himself, from making the food to making sure the tablewear matched the era. Serial killer Ted Bundy declined a 'special meal', so he was given a 'traditional' - steak (medium rare), eggs (over easy), hash browns, toast with butter and jelly, milk and juice.

    Hargreaves photographed the recreated meals of death row inmates from a prisoners-eye-view. One inmate, Victor Feguer, 28, simply requested a single unpitted olive - presented on a huge ceramic plate and accompanied with a knife and fork.
