Summary: 27 Good-byes is a book I created in 2009 when I realized that I had 18 years of photographs that I had taken as I waved good-bye and drove away from my parents at their home in Iowa. I started in 1991 with a snapshot, and continued taking photographs with each departure. I never set out to make this series. These photographs are part of a body of work I call Relative Moments, which has chronicled the lives of my parents and other relatives since 1986. But as I discovered the subset of accumulated “leaving and waving” photographs, I found a small story to tell about family, love, and the pain of saying good-bye.

Date and place of birth of photographer/s: 1954, Sioux City, Iowa USA
