Consider what resides in your refrigerator: would it provide some insight into your household consumption? Mark Menjivar explores the issue of hunger and the effects of consumption via photography in "You Are What You Eat," a collection of photo portraits of strangers' refrigerators...

These photos were taken by photographer Mark Menjivar in which he photographed the contents of strangers' refrigerators. I was entertained by the assumptions that might be made based on these photos. Couch potato? Athlete? Someone who cares about the environment? Someone who obviously doesn't?

What would your fridge say about you?

From the Artist:

"These are portraits of the rich and the poor. Vegetarians, Republicans, members of the NRA, those left out, the under appreciated, former soldiers in Hitler's SS, dreamers, and so much more. We never know the full story of one's life. My hope is that we will think deeply about how we care. How we care for our bodies. How we care for others. And how we care for the land."
