Each of us has different habits and routines in our daily lives. Milwaukee-based photographer Lois Bielefeld captured these routines in a fantastic photo series named Weeknight Dinners. The people in her photos are just like you and me: everyday folks eating their usual dinner on a weeknight. Two years and 78 portraits later, Lois presented us with the project that shows how diverse and interesting people’s habits are.
Lois chose to capture the dinnertime from Monday to Thursday, which is when most people don’t have so much time to prepare a huge meal and gather the family around. As a result, you get to peek into the daily lives of others for a brief moment and see how different we all are. The photos made me feel like I could share the moment with people in them. I spoke with Lois about her project to find out more about it, and I bring you some charming and informative stories of Weeknight Dinners, along with some wonderful photos.
