This documentary series was created over a span of three years as Mark Menjivar traveled across the United States to photograph the interiors of refrigerators in homes. The results are like portraits, each reflecting how jobs, economic status, and possibly, life experiences affect what foods we consume. I like the little facts he includes about each individual. My favorite is probably the gallery owner who is noted to be, “not very good at small talk.” There’s a milk to people ratio of 5:1.
