Recently we've shared a look into the bedrooms of Americans, and today the house tour continues. This time it's thanks to a Milwaukee-based professional photographer called Lois Bielefeld, who traveled the States (and parts of Luxembourg) documenting people during their Weeknight dinnertimes, revealing the amazing variety of people and their habits.

“I’m super nosy about people’s habits,” Lois explained to Feature Shoot. “I’ve always craved going into people’s homes- it’s inspiring, curious. It gives so many sometimes subtle and sometimes blatant insights about someone, and I just love to reveal that in my photography art.”

Some of the people you see have already been featured in her other photo series, but some are complete strangers to the photographer, found online and through old-fashioned info bulletins.

The only instructions Bielefeld shared with everyone was to go about their dinner plans as they normally would on any given weeknight, capturing the ordinary meals and the casualness of the whole thing.

While Lois suspected that some people did put extra effort in preparing for that particular dinner meals, she doesn't mind, because it only gives the series new layers to explore.

I love the furniture "on a budget". Lawn chair and the wood/wicker table/chair was probably found on the curb or for $1 at a yard sale. Been there, done that!

Most of these photos are sad and depressing. Many alone, lots of pills, lots of pre pkg meals. Many not eating at a table or together in same room. The pictures portray dark and gloomy looking meal times. My childhood memories were loud, everyone talking and lots of laughing. Perhaps not the fine manners some think a meal should be but it was catching up on everyone's day and family time together. Miss those days!
