You Are What You Eat

A while back (via Jen Beckman) I stumbled upon this pretty interesting photo project by Mark Menjivar called 'You Are What You Eat' and in his own words its, "series of portraits made by examining the interiors of refrigerators in homes across the United States".

Being of the curious fashion, this project totally intrigued me and also made perfect sense. He states, "you are what you eat uncovers truth in the way only photography can, and in doing so, reveals us. looking into the refrigerators sheds light on how we choose to nourish or malnourish ourselves and exposes how connected or disconnected we are to each other, to our bodies, and to the earth." (via here)
