What Your Refrigerator Says About You

While traveling across the country to explore the issue of hunger, photographer Mark Menjivar asked strangers if he could photograph the contents of their refrigerators. Each picture tells a story about the person:

And if the aphorism holds true—if we really are what we eat—then refrigerators are like windows into our souls. It’s that sentiment that’s at the heart of Mark Menjivar’s inventive exploration of hunger, “You Are What You Eat,” for which he photographed the contents of strangers’ refrigerators. As you can see, whether it holds neatly ordered rows of labels-out condiments or zip-locked stacks of shot-and-gutted buck meat, there’s almost certainly a narrative to a fridge’s arrangement.
