My goal is to explore common rituals, habits, and spaces that nonetheless reveal individualistic details about our private selves.
Her series “Weeknight Dinners” explores the nightly ritual of eating a meal in the American home. Lois visited American families at dinner time, and she’s created 78 prints from the United States.
