Last Suppers

Posted on August 13, 2009 Under Art

What is the last thing you would like to eat before taking that terminal trip into the beyond? Most of us probably won’t have to ponder the answer to this question, but there is a select group of folks who do. In some sort of attempt to humanize capital punishment, the American prison system offers those sentenced to death something called a last meal. James Reynolds shows us that when death is looming, each palate craves something unique. “Last Suppers” is a series of photographs depicting recreations of some of these. Something to make you think: what would you want?
