Intriguing or disturbing?








quote:

This project by photographer Henry Hargreaves is both intriguing and disturbing at the same time. The series, entitled No Seconds, features the last meals requested by inmates on death row. Hargreaves recreated the meals as he imagines they were served, complete with silverware, tablecloths, and lacy placemats. The details of each inmate are listed beside the photograph, including name, age, and the way that they were scheduled to die.

re: Intriguing or disturbing?


You could find it disturbing because it's someones last meal on earth. The artist found it unusual because of this reason.

quote:

The artist explains, "As an artist, I find a lot of my inspiration from the weird and unusual. I came across a Wikipedia page about final meal requests before prisoners were executed. I’m originally from New Zealand and, like a lot of foreigners, find the concept of the death penalty still existing in the U.S. really strange. Without needing to take a point of view on the right or wrong of the original crime, sentence, or possibility of a miscarriage of justice, for a brief moment I was able to identify with the person who would request this kind of a meal as their last on Earth,” and he follows by saying, "Hopefully with these images, you will be able to think about the condemned man as an individual. I hope that people can look beyond the crime, and stir some empathy for another human being."

I've never understood the concept: WTF difference does it make, you're about to die? How could you eat, anyway?

Of the ones who got the electric chair, I'd like to know how much of the dinner ended up on the inside of the face mask.

What's more intriguing is that for us non-death row people, we won't have a choice what our last meal will be

The only thing disturbing about this is that we afford them this nicety at all. You have to earn the death penalty through some very heinous acts.

To hell with these guys and any money spent on them is a waste.

I guess what I was going for was we don't know when we are going to die, as opposed to them, so we don't know which or what meal will be our last

I dont understand the last meal for mass-murderers like John Wayne Gacy and Ted Bundy. If they were honorable men I would get it but why do we give these people anything other than gruel....nothing but gruel.

I find it neither intriguing nor disturbing. I do find it quite comforting that all of them are now dead and will never kill again !

Ya I didnt get that from your OP but I guess when you put it that way it is more intriguing than disturbing.
