James Reynolds

UK artist James Reynolds, a recent graduate of Kingston University, has been working on an interesting series of photos; last meal requests by death row inmates.

His photo recreations of a mans last luxury are sterile reminders of our own ticking clocks and a prying question at what your remaining moments might mean to you.  I think I’d have to go with the single olive, it’s probably all I could stomach knowing I was about to be executed.  Or maybe the six Cokes, that would probably be enough to kill me dead before I even got to the saltine.

The best one though is the raw onion and two cokes, at least he opted to get a pack of extra for dessert to make sure his breath would be satisfactory.  I guess inmates really like coke?
