Dining in the Din

Every room is as unique as the people who live there, as recent Ringling College graduate Ian Dean makes clear in his photographic series about living spaces. Dean stages real-life rooms—in this case with a mix of disposable mass consumer items and more personal, nostalgic trinkets—in such a way that they become snapshots of a family’s history. Even without sharing a meal with the inhabitants of this Indian Beach dining room, we already feel we know them.
