Fine Art Friday: Henry Hargreaves - "No Seconds" Photo Series

Photographer Henry Hargreaves’s body of work “No Seconds” documents the final meals requested by death row inmates, some famous serial killers among them, and pairs the images with text describing the requested meal, the name of the criminal, and the crime he/she committed. Using the style of a visual survey, the images tap into the psyche of the criminal minds and give a bit of insight into their brains . Leaving the viewer stewing about the how and why some of the inmates considered the food, very specific or none at all, makes one ponder about the act of killing and the preference for a favorite meal, as an extension of a very compartmental mind.
