This beautiful Henry Hargreaves photography series recreates the last meals of death row inmates for his new melancholic 'No Seconds' photo series.

Capturing what they ate in a no-frill type of way (and photographing each one in the style that the food is reflective of), the Henry Hargreaves photography series also shows us what was on the menu and the crimes the different death row inmates committed.

Fueled by anger towards the US Death Penalty, the compassionate photographer is able to portray how these people just wanted a little bit of comfort through food in their last moments.

“In New Zealand (where I’m from), and in fact nearly any where else in the developed world, the Death Penalty is just not even in the conversation. It is a remnant of an earlier era," says Hargreaves.
