People call me Lizzie Bee

People call me Lizzie Bee. Southern California is where i call home and I have a family that I wouldn't trade for anything. Taken By A Good Man. Life is too short to not enjoy the beauty, comedy, sadness, love and righteousness that it holds. So here I share the things that mean something to me, in hopes they will mean something to you as well. Like OrangeSUnshine Blog on FACEBOOK for streaming updates:

"You Are What You Eat"


Much like the intriguing series In Your Fridge, You Are What You Eat is a comprehensive look into the refrigerators in homes across the United States. For three years Mark Menjivar traveled the country exploring various food issues. “The more time I spent speaking and listening to individual stories,” says Menjivar, “the more I began to think about the foods we consume and the effects they have on us as individuals and communities.”

“A refrigerator is both a private and a shared space," he continues. "One person likened the question, ‘May I photograph the interior of your fridge?’ to asking someone to pose nude for the camera. Each fridge is photographed ‘as is’. Nothing added, nothing taken away.”

Menjivar photos contain fridges from both poor and rich families. With this project, he hopes to make people more aware of how they should be taking care of their bodies.

Would you be embarrassed if you had to show strangers what's in your fridge?
