Like Celia Shapiro’s “Last Supper,” Jame’s Reynolds’ “Last Suppers” from 2009 re-creates the last meals of inmates on death row. The series was used by Amnesty International to show the last meals of executed men who were later proved or presumed innocent. It contains a photograph of an unpitted olive on a plastic tray, with the explanation: “Victor Feguer asked for an unpitted olive because he thought it might grow into an olive tree from inside him. It was supposed to be [a] symbol of peace.”
