2010 JAN Last meals by Jonathon Kambouris, The Esplanade, Singapore

An exhibition by Jonathon Kambouris at the Esplanade Tunnel from 7 – 24 January 2010, part of Fringe Gallery of  The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2010.

Last Meals is a series of photographic prints depicting mugshots of convicted killers and their selected last meals before execution. Every prisoner waiting to be executed is granted a last meal, which is usually limited to a sum of US$20. Prisoners waiting to die choose their last meals for different reasons – some feast on whatever they are craving for at the moment, while others chose something from their past memories which bring them personal comfort. Such details surrounding the final hours before being put to death are a matter of public record and are the inspiration for the series.
