You An Orchestra You A Bomb

Author: Cig Harvey


You an Orchestra You a Bomb captures moments of awe, makes icons of the everyday, and looks at life on the threshold between magic and disaster. Cig has always experienced the world viscerally and this work shows a heightened awareness of the temporary nature of life.

Through breathless moments of beauty,  her images propel us to fathom the sacred in the split-seconds of everyday.  Cig’s photographs are interwoven with her intimate poetry in this hauntingly beautiful book.
