You Look At Me Like An Emergency

‘At the beginning of Cig Harvey’s new book we’re told that it is “A Love Story,” but really it’s much more than that. It’s also about an artist’s relationship to her medium and how she uses it to escape, explore, translate, lament and celebrate life.’

Description

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.
