Picture Show: You Are What You Eat

header pshow fridges fkjkjnk2 Picture Show: You Are What You Eat

We purchase refrigerators the way we fill them: out of necessity???to preserve the milk; to keep the greens from wilting. But from the right vantage point, an open fridge is the perfect staging grounds for a discussion of consumption. 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.
