Artist Statement:

These are the last meals reported of three death row inmates in 2020. Food brings us sustenance, but it also brings community and culture — this makes us human. For those on death row, food functions as one of the last moments of connection, and it is important that we “rehumanize” people when we think of the comfort and connections we build around our meals.
