Photographer Lois Bielefeld offers insight on Americans during intimate moments with the family at the table.
When she was little, my parents instilled in her proper table etiquette. So Lois began to wonder, do all of his family and made it in them to sit at the table all together.
“My family was always getting together for dinner (we had to ask permission to leave the table), — says Bielefeld. — I’m not very interested in eating until until I grow up and start to regularly prepare and search for their tastes. But even at a young age, I recognized that food brings people together and is a way of exploring different cultures.”
Usually these pictures are exhibited in a large format that allows the viewer as if to join the depicted in them the meal. “The project itself was withdrawn in the evening from Monday to Thursday because I wanted to capture the habits and the rituals generated by the time pressure in the evenings during the week. Weekend people have more time — says the author of the photo project. — I work with series, because I like to see the similarities and differences in people that are close to all — we all eat”.
“I love all the little details in people’s homes. I look at these pictures and large prints more often than anyone, and always find the photos new things that I hadn’t noticed”, — says the photographer.
Look at these pictures. They really can be examined for hours, they have so much detail and features.
