7 McNuggets and A Switch Blade

Filed under: Photography, The Uncanny — corona @ 12:51

I’m a big fan of “hypotheticals.” I love asking friends and family what they would do in a specific situation that is likely to never take place.

“If I was bitten by a zombie, would you wait for me to turn and kill me or would you spare me and shoot me in the head instantly?”

“If you won the lottery, what would you buy first and where would you want to live?”

“If you had the opportunity to murder anyone without ever being found out, who would it be?”  No one ever wants to play this one…

And one of my all-time favorites, “What would your last meal consist of?”

Julia Ziegler-Haynes wanted to know what someone who has years to contemplate this very question would eventually decide on, and after going through years of public records, she has re-created and photographed some infamous inmates’ final entrees. Yummy, and sad. Mostly sad.

Her website is under constrution, but you can see more photos here:
