Food Photo Friday: What's In Your Fridge?

What's in my fridge? A bunch of Filipino soup and seafood stew; probably six jars of various mustards; lots of produce, mostly wilted; sundry dairy products; and a bottle of bright blue curacao from last year's Antarctica-themed party (yep), about 1 ounce of which has been consumed — languishing somewhere in the hinterland of ketchup bottles and mysterious things-in-Tupperware.

Photographer Mark Menjivar stands by the age-old adage that you are what you eat. So would this foodie's Freudian analysis make me wilted curacao stew?

Menjivar began photographing refrigerator interiors while working on a hunger documentary. "These are portraits of the rich and the poor," his artist statement says. "Vegetarians, Republicans, members of the NRA, those left out, the underappreciated, former soldiers in Hitler's SS, dreamers, and so much more. We never know the full story of one's life." The project came to a close last month, he wrote in an e-mail. You can see more on his site.
