[ mark menjivar ] you are what you eat

(documentary filmmakers | san diego, ca | 3-person household | efforts have helped send millions of dollars to children in uganda | 2008)

one HUGE thing i miss about living on my own is having my own kitchen. living back with my mom and grandparents, i don't get a chance to use the kitchen very often. and even when i want to make my own food, we don't really have the ingredients i need. because i can't really grocery shop, as there's not much room in the fridge anyway.

mark menjivar has a photo series called "you are what you eat" - where he traveled all over the US photographing the inside of people's fridges. interesting that people view their fridge as a private thing... and more interesting how much what's in your fridge can define you.
