stephanie de rouge: in your fridge

with a fascination for big cities and their occupants, new york-based photographer stéphanie de rougé started out with a series that documented various types of people in their most natural environment – the bedroom – but found this space to be lacking in intimacy and permanence. ‘the building walls don’t talk. new yorkers move all the time, share and sublet rooms,’ says rougé. ‘not a good setting for a long term relationship with one self.’

from there, she organically stumbled upon the idea of ‘in your fridge’, a candid series of images which records individuals and the inner contents of their refrigerators. highly voyeuristic and honest, the collection of photographs is a spin on the idea of portraits, capturing an almost intrusive side of the subject’s daily life.

  • agreeing with some others here: for what sh** those decided to put barbies and clothes to pose inside their fridges? the purpose was to tell what is often inside and not to find new use for fridge (mental rehab maybe)

  • To vraiment:

    The article description clearly says that these are photographs of New Yorkers. You’ll also notice that many of the other groceries are described in English (the clearly labeled ‘Organic Fat Free Milk’ in the picture third from the bottom) or American brands (something tells me they don’t sell Smucker’s Jelly in France).
