A Look Inside People's Refrigerators

Photographer Mark Menjivar travelled across the US for three years and talked to people from every walk of life about food. He also took pictures of their refrigerators. Dirty or clean, empty or full.

He compiled the photos and captioned each one as part of his self-titled project "You Are What You Eat." It's a unique look at our lives according to what we eat and how we store our food.
