Cig Harvey’s book is a visual autobiography populated by the photographer’s central relationships over the course of more than a decade. Through rich, vibrant photographs and startlingly revealing writing, Cig transforms quotidian experiences that reference time, childhood, and femininity into totems that mark key moments in her life.
As much a document of one woman’s emotional life as it is a catalog of psychological archetypes, You Look At Me Like An Emergency takes the viewer on a literal and metaphorical journey with family, friends, and lovers through fields and forests, dwellings and cities, oceans and caves to finally find a place called home. In seventy-four gorgeously colored photographs and seventeen written vignettes, Emergency conveys the universal quest for personal identity and place in the world.
