This is Miho Aikawa's project 'Dinner in New York' where she went to the homes of various friends and took intimate portraits of their dinner times to see how people were eating in their every day lives. Unsurprisingly it's a lot of hurried dinners staring at screens.

She also has another dinner series called 'Dinner in Tokyo' which is worth checking out.


Going through her photos I realized that last night dinner was in front of the tv and really the only time I don't do that is when I eat out. I'm not saying that dinner and tv or dinner and your laptop/device is a bad thing, in fact it's the most luxurious thing ever. But there is something to be said about ignoring the world for company and good food.
