Karla Faye Tucker, executed in 1998, ate a banana, peach and garden salad with ranch dressing. Her healthy choice is pitifully ironic – we usually eat fruit and vegetables to prolong our lives. She was the first woman to be executed in Texas for more than 100 years. Photograph: Helen Thompson

By contrast, career criminal Robert Alton Harris’s last meal in 1992 included a pack of cigarettes bearing the warning “Smoking Kills”. We’ll never know if that was a deliberate attempt at the blackest of humour. Photograph: Helen Thompson

The idea behind the project, initiated by graphic designer Matt Prosser, was to juxtapose the morbid context surrounding the meal with the relative mundanity of the food itself. Photograph: Helen Thompson

Prosser approached still-life and food photographer Helen Thompson, who recreated the meals on trays in a studio. Needless to say, she didn’t eat them afterwards.Photograph: Helen Thompson

Jack Dee and Will Self join the surreal conversation, too. (At least, I'm pretty sure it's Jack and Will...).
