For her second photobook, I Am About to Call it a Day, Bieke Depoorter traveled to the United States, spending the night at the homes of strangers whose paths she crossed upon her wanderings. The series of images provides a glance into the worlds of these families, taking us behind the other side of the glass and into the intimacy of their homes.

This image, which became the cover image for the photobook, is available as part of the Magnum After Dark Collection, celebrating nighttime photography from around the world.
