Last meal

“Every prisoner waiting to be executed is granted a last meal. Prisoners waiting to die choose their last meal for different reasons. Some choose from past memories, while others feast on what they crave at the moment. Such fascinating details surrounding the final hours before being put to death are a matter of public record and are the inspiration for this series of photographs. ” This is what Jonathon Kambouris wrote at the beginning of his ‘the last meals project’. He believes that Justice may not always be served because the innocent can be proved guilty and the guilty can be proved innocent. Choosing the last meal is a significant ritual because the accuracy and validity of this choice is the only answer one can ultimately accept. We choose 10 of his 27 last meal pictures showing below, and you can also go to: www.lastmealsproject.com to see more.
