"You Are What You Eat" is a photo series by San Antonio-based photographer Mark Menjivar in which he photographed the insides of strangers’ refrigerators. We liked the above, a freezer-full of meat and booze. Says Menjivar:

A refrigerator is both a private and a shared space. One person likened the question, "May I photograph the interior of your fridge?" to asking someone to pose nude for the camera. Each fridge is photographed "as is." Nothing added, nothing taken away.

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.
