Photographer Compares 14 Fridges And Their Owners Around The World

One photographer analyzes what people from various countries keep in their refrigerators.

What you have in your refrigerator can say a ton about you, not just your dietary patterns.

For example, it can tell whether you are a lazy or eager cook. Or if cooking is your genuine hobby.

It can also uncover whether you are a veggie lover or vegan. What’s more, as a rule, it can educate us concerning your way of life overall.

Assuming you’re generally curious as to know what’s in somebody’s refrigerator, this Show Me Your Fridge project will start help satiate that burning curiosity.

Sandra Juncker — a German photographer and gluten-free healthy food lover — chose to document individuals’ refrigerator to discover how much the contents of a refrigerator can tell about their lives. What’s more, here are the outcomes.

Since 2012 Sandra visited individuals from London, Cape Town, Pretoria, Istanbul, Madrid, Paris, and Berlin and took photos of their refrigerators.

In her project, she carefully chose individuals from various characters, societies, customs, ages, and social situations.

Talking about what inspired this project, Sandra said:

“This series is about fridges, a space which people use probably more than three times a day without a greater intention.”

“So what does this tell us about the people who use these fridges? Do we have a special system filling it?”

“What belongs in our fridges, and what do we eat? Is there any difference or similarity between different cultures, countries, ages, or flat sharing? Do we keep leftovers, and how do we store them?”

She added:

“The trend goes even more now towards responsible handling of food like bio-produced items or special diets. Do we see this in our fridges? Are we finding our fridges filled with a superfluous amount of food where we end up taking from the first row and forgetting about the rest?”

“Within the past few years, the topic of food has been the main focus of my interests. So it’s even more important to me that I did this series of fridges with their owners.”

It may be a mistake to pass judgment on somebody dependent on their refrigerator’s content. However, you can some way or another form a general thought to who owns them simply by taking a peek at the things inside.

As per Sandra’s venture, the greatest refrigerator loaded with a wide range of pre-prepared meals had belonged with a grandmother. A mysterious compartment with chocolate presumably for spoiling grandkids belonged with an older German couple.

However, a young couple’s refrigerator from busy Paris had almost nothing inside.

Sandra has put resources into the subjects of food, for example, current patterns of food handling and waste.

As studied by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, more than 1.3 billion tons of food is lost or wasted each year.

Food waste frequently happens because of terrible shopping habits, poor meal planning, and th confusion between ‘best before’ and ‘use by’ information. It likewise occurs because of poor storage.

We can decrease the effects of food wastages, including contamination and expenses, by beginning with our own refrigerators.
