LOVE STORY: NEW PHOTOGRAPHY OF LOVE AND INTIMACY by Rachel Segal Hamilton (Hoxton Mini Press £20, 224 pp)
WHENEVER photographer Deanna Dikeman left her parents in their retirement bungalow to drive home, there were emotional goodbyes. Dikeman’s natural response was to capture them waving farewell each time (above), in a 27-year ritual that began in 1991. The final shot in this poignant collection was taken when she left the property one last time after her mother’s funeral.
This beautiful and intimate book manages to grasp the intangible — love — whether between friends, family or lovers, without being cliched.
