Spending a night in the home of a stranger can be very revealing. Access to the intimate lodging of a person or family, and spending an entire day with them, will give you more insight into their life than you probably wanted in the first place.
Belgian photographer Bieke Depoorter’s latest photo series entitled ‘Ou Menya’ (‘With Me’) did just that, as the photographer spent nights inside the homes of Russians from around the country. Snapping photos as she traveled along, Depoorter's work provides an intimate look into the homes of total strangers, capturing the families in a way you would never see from the outside.
