'These are portraits of the rich and the poor. Vegetarians, Republicans, members of the NRA, those left out, the under-appreciated, former POWs, dreamers, and so much more. We never know the full story of one’s life,' says Menjivar.Menjivar photographed the fridges as they were, with no tidying up, no tossing out, no removal of that three-day-old take-out. In some cases, Menjivar returned and photographed fridges four years after the initial shot, finding their contents much changed. Many of the images are thought-provoking, piquing curiosity about the lives of the people whose food they contain. Others, especially the more empty ones, are slightly sad, especially with the small amount of information Menjivar has provided about the number of people in a household and their jobs or income. 'A refrigerator can be a starting place to let our imagination roam and lead to reflection,' Menjivar told Slate. Looking into other peoples' fridges is oddly intimate, slightly voyeuristic and very intriguing, and for Menjivar, some fridges stand out more than others.
The fridge belonging to a bartender, which was full of take-out boxes, smelt so bad that Menjivar had to close it three times before he got his shot.
He recently revisited the bartender, who has now lost more than 100lbs. 'All of those takeout containers have been replaced with fresh foods, vegetables and breads. He has completely changed his eating habits,' Menjivar told The Splendid Table.Fresh produce: This is the fridge of a 'food artist' from Brooklyn, Nwe York, who runs a small vegan bakery from her apartment
