"Leaving and Waving"

September 2002 through October 2003

"Leaving and Waving" by Missouri photographer Deanna Dikeman, is the fourth Artspace Project Wall.

Part of Dikeman’s series "Relative Moments," which pictured casual, candid portraits of her aging parents and other family members, "Leaving and Waving" depicts the artist’s parents standing in the driveway and waving goodbye as her car is pulling away.

Both sentimental and grounded in the everyday, "Leaving and Waving" revealed a sense of timeless nostalgia and longing, a defining quality within much of Dikeman’s imagery.
