How we eat now: Mark Menjivar's fridge photos

Mark Menjivar spent three years traveling America examining issues surrounding hunger, and after countless conversations he set out to photograph individual's refrigerators as an alternative form of portraiture. "My hope is that we will think deeply about how we care," he writes in his artist's statement. "How we care for our bodies. How we care for others. And how we care for the land." His work offers a glimpse at differing views of consumption, while giving surprisingly intimate glimpses of people who never find their way into the frame.
